La Boheme | Athens | To January 5

TAGS: Opera

Due to popular appeal, the Greek National Opera is reviving acclaimed British director Graham Vick's production of Puccini's all-time classic “La Boheme.” The production, which was first staged in 2007, commissioned by the GNO's artistic director at the time, Stefanos Lazaridis, transports the story of four ambitious young artists and the ill-fated romance of Rodolfo and Mimi from 19th century Paris to 21st century Exarchia. Vick’s version of the repertory classic returns as part of a tribute to the late Lazaridis, with shows taking place at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) on December 7, 8, 13, 17, 20, 24, 27 and 30, and January 3 and 5, starting at 8 p.m. Mimi is performed alternately by Myrto Papatanasiu and Anna Stylianaki, and Rodolfo by Yiannis Christopoulos and Angelos Samartzis. Tickets cost 15, 20, 30, 40, 45 and 60 euros, and can be purchased in advance at www.nationalopera.gr or the SNFCC.
