EPITAPHIOS
Yannis Ritsos - Mikis Theodorakis

Maria Farantouri

Holy Wednesday, April 4, 2018 / 20.30

Stavros Niarchos Hall
of the Greek National Opera

Yannis Ritsos' requiem, Epitaphios, a long poem of extraordinary solidity and spiritual power set to music by Mikis Theodorakis, is performed by the internationally acclaimed Greek singer Maria Farantouri and the world-renowned Greek opera singer Tasos Apostolou at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) on Holy Wednesday. They are accompanied by three great soloists: Achilleas Wastor on piano, Hercules Zakkas on bouzouki and Alexandros Botinis on cello.

Through Mikis Theodorakis' music and Maria Farantouri's voice, Epitaphios becomes a riveting musical statement of grief and human dignity.

The first part of the concert features the complete Epitaphios; in the second part, Maria Farantouri performs poetry set to music by major Greek composers.

Featuring:
Vocals: Maria Farantouri & Tasos Apostolou
Piano: Achilleas Wastor
Bouzouki: Hercules Zakkas
