This exclusive one-off concert will be conducted by internationally acclaimed orchestra conductor, and Musical Director and Conductor for the Athens Olympics, George Ellis. 

Theodorakis' incredible body of work will be brought to life by Sydney Concertmaster Dimitris Calligeros, together with international vocalist Dimitris Basis, a 4-piece Greek band and 40-piece orchestra.

The first half of this two-part concert features the incredibly moving Romiosini, performed for the first time by a full symphony orchestra.  This cycle of 9 songs, based on the poetry of Lenin Peace Prize winner Yiannis Ritsos, is a poignant tribute to Greece.

The concert’s second half, Beyond, is dedicated to Theodorakis’ most popular music including his world-famous score for Zorba the Greek and his other celebrated cinema work. Common in modern Greek music, the bouzouki will feature in the second half. 

This spectacular music event comes days after Brisbane's much-loved Greek festival Paniyiri takes over South Brisbane, making the month of May truly a tribute to all things Greek.
