Joining the creative team of Powder Her Face, presented at the Greek National Opera


Big decisions! I happy to announce I prolonging my stay in Greece, in order to join the creative team of Powder Her Face, presented by the Greek National Opera!


The masterly scandal-based opera Powder Her Face (1995) of the British music scene’s enfant terrible and Grammy and Laurence Olivier award-winner, Thomas Adès, will receive its Greek premiere at the GNO Alternative Stage.


The work is based on the scandalous life of Margaret Campbell, Duchess of Argyll, who in 1963 shocked the English audience with her sexual excesses. The Duchess’ true and bold story, her love affairs, passions, divorces and tragic death are wonderfully portrayed through the enrapturing music of charismatic composer Thomas Adès –considered by many as Benjamin Britten’s successor– and Philip Hensher’s libretto with its peculiar language and provocative love scenes.


The opera is masterly directed by Alexandros Efklidis, Artistic Director of the Alternative Stage of Greek National Opera. I serve the production as Associate Director. 


Libretto by Philip Hensher Conductor: Nicolas Vassiliou Director: Alexandros Efklidis Set and Costume Designer: Yannis Katranitsas Lighting Designer: Melina Mascha Movement: Fotis Diamantopoulos Associate Director: Lyto Triantafyllidou
