Greek Legends of the 20th Century
200 Years of Greek Independence
Celebrating 200 years of Greek Independence, the cream of Greek/Australian singers, dancers, and musicians have combined their supreme talents in a spectacular show paying tribute to the musical icons of the past hundred years.
The genius of Theodorakis and Vangelis and the vocal and lyrical magic of Kazandzidis, Marinella, Vembo, Dalaras, Alexiou, Demis Roussos, Nana Mouskouri and the inimitable Maria Callas is brought to life in a concert of epic proportions.
In what is a world premiere, this extravaganza is directed by the critically acclaimed Penny Pavlakis, who after more than 25 years of performing on the world Opera and Contemporary stages, has agreed to headline the show. Musical Director from Greece, Manolis Michalakis has put together The A Team of musicians from around Australia to deliver what promises to be the musical highlight of the year.
With 30 musicians, singers, and dancers as well as traditional Lyre instruments representing the North and South of Greece, one of the many highlights of the evening will be the 8 Bouzouki Spectacular. Also appearing will be Australia’s premier vocal group, The Ten Sopranos!
This grand event showcases the talents of Greek Australian artists, and the wonderful contribution The Greek Legends of the 20th Century have delivered to the world of music and entertainment.
Penny Pavlakis, George Malliaros, and 8 Bouzouki Spectacular with a host of special guests including Jemilly Pavlakis Kalil, Themis Ioakimidis, The Ten Sopranos and more.
