Nabucco | Athens | June 6 & 8


The Greek National Opera is back at the Roman-era Herod Atticus Theater with its production of Giuseppe Verdi's “Nabucco,” an opera that served as a career and personal comeback for the Italian composer after one of the toughest periods of his life. Conducted by Philippe Auguin and directed by Leo Muscato, the show stars award-winning Greek baritone Dimitri Platanias in the title role, Demos Flemotomos as Ismaele, Riccardo Zanellatο as Zaccaria and Sae-Kyung Rim as Abigaille. There will be Greek and English surtitles. Shows start at 9 p.m. and tickets, at 15-55 euros, can be booked on the Greek Festival website (www.greekfestival.gr) or purchased from its box office at 39 Panepistimiou Street.
