Guillem to dance under the full moon June 23, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Ballet Dance Opera, Hellenic Athens Festival.

French dance star Sylvie Guillem and her partner Akram Khan are to dance for the Athens Festival and the Museum of Cycladic Art beneath the Acropolis in the ancient amphitheater of Herod Atticus and tickets are already hard to find.

Dolly Goulandris, head of the Museum and of the Nikolaos P. Goulandris Foundation, will give a dinner for the performers, attended by head of the Athens Festival Giorgos Loukos as well as the sponsors Pil Poul – Jerome Serres.

The first four rows of the ancient theater will be taken over to make room for an extended stage, so the first row will actually be Row 5. The evening of the performance, June 29, is also that of the full moon. The magic is due to start at 9.30 p. m.
