Zorba (Theodorakis-Keveházi)
When > Friday, 17 November 2006 19:00
Where > Erkel Színház
What > Dance (ballet)

Zorba the elusive Greek Tzigane, Zorba the archetype of the primordial attachment to life and Zorba the problematic modern man, these are the three interpretations.

Zorba is intellectually and emotionally mobile, according to the tradition of the ancient Mediterranean peoples, and he is capable of being self-sufficient: he says what he thinks and does what he pleases. Legend has him as an impetuous character, full of ardour, vehemence and enthusiasm.

Tickets are Ft 600; Ft 700; Ft 2,000; Ft 3,200 and Ft 4,900 from Jegymester.

Fancy having a week of parties and parades to enjoy on your next holiday? If so, fly to Athens for its annual carnival season in mid-February.

This event celebrates the culture of both Greece and its capital with a series of processions, performances, markets and more.

A diverse array of arts remain the focus of this event, with seeing bands and artists specialising in music from Greece and Asia Minor, as well as the Latino, pop and Greek new wave genres.

As you would expect for a carnival, the parades tend to be nothing less than spectacular, with participants dressing up in colourful costumes while marching and dancing through the streets of Athens.

To make this a family affair, children get their own series of events to enjoy, while both food and drink flow freely throughout. And with Athens being a city imbued with a long, rich history, sightseers will find much to appreciate when the festivities are over.
