Due to the ongoing pandemic, all performance dates are subject to change.

Thanos Mikroutsikos, a major composer who left his mark on the Greek music scene and radically changed the musical landscape of Greece through his various institutional roles, passed away last year. Mikroutsikos also served as artistic director of the Athens & Epidaurus Festival, decisively contributing to the Festival’s modernisation. This is precisely why the Festival honours him this year with a tribute concert at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, dedicated to Mikroutsikos’ theatre music (1972-2019).

A musical journey through songs, choral parts, musicals and revues, which were loved by audiences and went on to enjoy a life beyond the theatre stage. Music originally written for theatre, for plays by Brecht, Lope de Vega, Euripides and Aristophanes, together with Ritsos, Cavafy and Kavvadias poems set to music.

Singers Rita Antonopoulou, Foivos Delivorias, Christos Thivaios and Kostas Thomaidis will perform under the baton of Thymios Papadopoulos, whom Thanos Mikroutsikos used to call “my alter ego”. In between the musical notes, actress Renia Louizidou will recite texts written by Odysseas Ioannou.
