On December 22-23, at the Onassis Cultural Center, children of all ages, performers, five composers, a writer, a director and a narrator sing Christmas and New Year’s carols -carols old and new by the Greek Design.
Songs, signs of joyous news, celebrations and holidays, carols are a custom deeply rooted in our cultural consciousness. Following its “Myths of the world become children’s songs” project, the Greek Design puts together yet another theatrical concert.
Traditional Christmas carols mostly narrate an old story about the birth of Christ. However, carols are rooted in antiquity, with references to people’s everyday life; they tell stories of joy, they describe habits –and there is no shortage of carols that playfully poke fun at the history of each house’s head. This is to say that, centered on the birth of Christ and Santa Claus’s visit, carols talk about life in general. Thus, the new carols in the performance “tell ” their own unique versions.
The program’s artistic curators are Dimitris Papadimitriou, Rallou Vogiatzi, Tasos Rossopoulos, and Kostas Fasoulas. Featured composers include Angelos Angelou, Konstantinos Evangelidis, Nefeli Liouta, Giorgos Chatzipieris, and Fenia Christou. The performance is narrated by Manolis Mavromatakis.
