Tribute to the Greek Lyric Singing (Operetta)

On Saturday 01/11/2008 we have organized a Musical Performance at the Municipal Theater of Rhodes, at 20.30 with singers from Rhodes, accompanied by the piano and the choir Senza Intermezzo, under the direction of Michalis Kalaentzis.

The repertory has been selected among the Greek Operettas which have been “worshipped” at the beginning of the 20th century and which people still love nowadays.

On the occasion of the completion of 100 years since the composition of the first Greek Operetta “Sail backwards and we anchor” (“Sia ke araxame”) and its presentation in Athens, work of the great composer Theophrastos Sakellaridis.

At the piano the composer and pianist Memnoune Kiazim.

Vocals by the sopranos Zoe Kokkala, Natalia Eleftheriou and the tenor George Manettas.

The performance is enriched with dancing by Emine Kiazim. The presentation is directed by the actor and director Suzanna Kardoulia.
