#rbnews international show 02 February 2013 – Culture in the time of the crisis (2): The Dance Box at the Greek National Opera

On #rbnews international on 02 February 2013, we continued our series about culture in the time of the crisis in Greece with a show dedicated to dance. We interviewed Renato Zanella (@ZanellaRZ), the head of the ballet company at the Greek National Opera, who launched, among other things, the Dance Box, a bridge programme for unemployed graduates of the Opera’s dance academy. The Dance Box company will be officially presented in a dance gala in the Olympia theatre in Athens on Sunday 03 February.

The pieces of music in the show are excerpts from:

  • Gioachino Rossini: Overture of “La Gazza Ladra
  • Johann Strauss, Jr: Tritsch-Tratsch (polka, opus 214), Frühlingstimmer (waltz, opus 410), Klipp-Klapp (gallopade, opus 466),
  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Exsultate Jubilate (motet, opus 165).
