“Sleep Persephone in the arms of the earth…”, “in Elefsina once”, for a one and only concert, Maria Farandouri and Manolis Mitsias join their voices, on August 27, and remind us of some of the masterpieces of artistic and popular Greek song by the great composers and great poets: Theodorakis, Hatzidakis, Mikroutsikos, Seferis, Elytis, Ritsos, Gatsos, Anagnostakis and others. Two great artists, stable and consistent in quality singing, appear in one of the most important archaeological sites and perform well-known and beloved songs accompanied by excellent musicians.

The two great artists are prefaced by Mystery 154 Live Music Acts, a chamber music concert with the up-and-coming and promising Eleusinian violinist Emilios Bartzis and the award-winning piano soloist Margaritas Kolasi, produced by the 2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture. The audience that will be at the Archaeological site of Eleusis that evening will have the opportunity to enjoy the two soloists’ unique performances in a program of classical repertoire with works by J. Brahms and L. V. Beethoven for violin and piano.

With the support of the Ephorate of Antiquities of Western Attica.

Warm thanks: to Christina Merkouri, Director of EF.A.D.A. and to Efstathia Anesti, Archaeologist of the EF.A.D.A., as well as to all the security personnel of the Archaeological site of Elefsina.
