Soprano Gina Fotinopoulou and tenor Antonis Koroneos will be accompanied on the piano by Maria Neofytidou in a recital titled “Female heroes. Of love and of death”. The programme combines arias and duets from well-loved operas, such as Madama Butterfly, Norma, Gioconda, Tosca, Manon Lescaut, La Bohème and La Τraviatta, interspersed with love poems by Greek poets Maria Polydouri, Odysseas Elytis, Constantine Kavafis and Kostas Karyotakis. Fragile women in love and strong female personalities mingle in this repertoire based on unrequited love and its tragic “end”, whether voluntarily chosen or appearing unexpectedly.
