Premiere of STRELLA at Greek National Opera Postponed

It is announced that the premiere of the new chamber opera Strella is postponed for Wednesday 1 February 2023 due to technical reasons.

Tickets purchased for the performances of the 28nd, 29th and 31th of January 2023 can either be transferred to another day or cancelled with full refund.

Yorgos, a 48-year-old man just released from prison, meets Strella, a young trans sex worker with a passion for Maria Callas, in a squalid Athens hotel. For the first time after a long while, the future looks promising for both of them. However, Yorgos has unfinished business with his past and his history comes back to haunt him. Along with Strella, they have to find their own way to redemption.

The cinematic story of Strella has all the marks of a realistic music drama, as it leans on Ancient Greek tragedy (with direct allusions to the Oedipus myth) in terms of operatic verismo. 13 years later, in an age when daring and truth are absolutely essential, the film's characters remain timely and are dealt with not as caricatures, but as regular people who fall in love and experience pain.
