OPINION

November 24-25, 1952

NATIONAL THEATER DRAMA: Since yesterday, the world of the theater has been in an uproar over reports from New York of the scant attention paid to the Greek National Theater and the fact that publicity seems to be restricted solely to Katina Paxinou and Alexis Minotis. The organizers of the theater’s tour, obviously influenced by the interested parties, have ignored the official status of the State Theater of Greece, persenting it to the public as the Paxinou-Minotis company. This has led to strong protests by G. Theotokas and Dimitris Rondiris, which are unfortunately, to no avail. According to reports from the United States, the tension has reached such a pitch that Mr Rondiris has been forced to return earlier than he had originally planned. GREEK PHOTOGRAPHY ASSOCIATION APPROVED: By decision of the Athens Court of the First Instance (ruling No 1183/52), the charter of the association founded in Athens with the name Greek Photography Association has been approved. SKOPJE PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA: Skopje, 21- Mr Theodoros Vavayiannis has conducted the Skopje Philharmonic Orchestra. The concert was a huge success and attracted a full house. The audience called the Greek artist out for several curtain calls. ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY BUILDING: The demolished building of the Archaeological Society is to be rebuilt on the same site to an architectural design that meets all the current needs of the foundation.
