‘Apollo Delios’ on historic Cycladic isle

There’s an exciting sequel to the exceptional event being organized by the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation on Delos on September 1. «Apollo Delios,» a music and ballet event featuring the orchestra and soloists from the ballet of La Scala with principal dancer Roberto Bolle, conducted by Daniele Gatti, will be performed at sunset on Delos. Not only will that performance be broadcast live by state TV channel NET in Greece, but it will also be recorded and broadcast by Net-World to the Greek diaspora. Greek Radio and Television (ERT) will also offer the show to the European Broadcasting Union to be shown abroad. At a press conference Thursday, the foundation’s president Antonis Papadimitriou thanked State Minister Theodoros Roussopoulos and praised state-run television for promoting the event abroad and attracting visitors to Greece. Only 500 people will be in the audience on Delos and Helbi, heaven willing, will be among them. On September 3 the performance will be repeated at the Herod Atticus Theater. The proceeds will go to the Hellenic Society for Disabled Children (ELEPAP). No man is an island, as the poet said, and Delos is not just an island. It is a living myth.
