Thank you to Exostis Free Press for the interview! Read it here in Greek:
In Paris, January 24th 2016, I had the pleasure to perform with the Orchestre Symphonic du XX under the baton of Mohamed Hafiz Razali! The audience welcomed us, warm and exciting, we had couple of encores, so we go back for two more concerts in April! À la prochaine!!!
I am most glad to announce our recital “Apparition” on the 29th of April at 20.00 with Rémy Dechambre! Join us for an evening that visits from fragile Mimì and femme fatale Norina to Debussy’s reveries and Bernstein’s 10-year-old thoughts…and many more! All these in a warm and cozy place, Art Base in Brussels. Our program owes its name to a poem by Mallarmé we both love and which immediately enchanted us…
So, in two days at the Koninklijk Conservatorium of Brussels (Kleine Zavel) at 12.30 (free entrance) you can enjoy scenes from Le Nozze Di Figaro and Idomeneo by W.A.Mozart played by the students. On piano Mr.Jan Vande Weghe and on direction Mrs.Maja Jantar.
I play Ilia, the persian princess, now a prisoner in Creta, after the Trojan war, who falls in love with the enemy, the Greek prince Idamante. I had a great time preparing this role, not only because of the beautiful music and lyrics written, but also because Maja gave to the team an amazingly large amount of creative possibilities through body and voice improvisation. We worked together for 2 weeks, 5,5 hours every day and I will surely miss it after this Friday. So, see you there on Friday! 😉
PS. Some pics from the rehearsal’s in my Tarja Turunen style coat! Hell yeah!!!
And of course, one family photo!
So the New Year’s Project has come to an end…
I enjoyed it so much I can’t tell!
The musicians I played with and the beautiful and exciting moments on and off stage…
These are some pics from last night’s soundcheck and performance in Brugge’s Concertgebouw -one of the most beautiful halls I have ever sang…Ah…already miss it…
So…what’s next future? Come on, gimme some lovvvve 😉
After some fairytale days in Paris which stirrrrred my imagination and some crazy scheduled rehearsals in Antwerp which interestingly enough tested my physical strength, now Brrrrrussels, back to base – as stable as that can be, finishing my new book which is going to be a cocktail of poetry, photography, drawings and short stories… Typing next to the flowers from yesterday’s concert. Thank you Stadsschouwburg Sint-Niklaas for a warm applause and for embracing our musical enthusiasm!
In the meantime, this week I am meeting some exceptionally talented people for a new project for which I will be announcing news soon.
Until then, have nice, warrrrm days and take care!
PS. I visited Morrison’ s last house at Père Lachaise, thank god you can still have a little something or nothing from him!
Happy New Year!
I will have the pleasure to perform with the Youth Orchestra of Antwerp in a belgian tour
and also the honor to sing by the side of Wilfried Van den Brande!!
I am delighted to announce that Friday 19th December at 20.00 in Saint Paul’s Church, Antwerp I sing Händel’s Messiah amongst great musicians and under the button of Maestro Ivo Venkov. More info here!
