Greek premiere 

Greek National Opera Alternative Stage 
Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center 

Starts at: 20.30 (Sunday: 19.00|   

The masterly scandal-based opera Powder her face (1995) of the British music scene's enfant terrible and Grammy and Laurence Olivier award-winner, Thomas Adès, will receive its Greek premiere at the GNO Alternative Stage.
The work is based on the scandalous life of Margaret Campbell, Duchess of Argyll, who in 1963 shocked the English audience with her sexual excesses. The Duchess' true and bold story, her love affairs, passions, divorces and tragic death are wonderfully portrayed through the enrapturing music of charismatic composer Thomas Adès -considered by many as Benjamin Britten's successor- and Philip Hensher's libretto with its peculiar language and provocative love scenes.
In his music, Thomas Adès elaborately combines various influences from Igor Stravinsky, Alban Berg and Benjamin Britten to Kurt Weil's cabarets and Astor Piazzola's tangos, creating an opera already considered a modern classic and performed in the world's leading opera houses.
