The fictional meeting between Maria Callas and Sofia Vempo which was first presented last winter with great success, at Half Note Jazz Club, from 15 November 2019 every Friday and Sunday for a limited number of performances at Michael Cacoyannis Foundation.
At the piano – bar of the hotel “Acropol Pallas”, Maria Callas, the voice of the world, «meets» the voice of Greece, Sofia Vempo, the night of the demonstrations about “One-One Four” – “Violence and fraud”.
The performance takes us back in time and the meeting of these two women, on a fictional night, in the winter of 1961, at the foyer of the historical hotel Acropol Pallas, in the corner of the streets Patision and Stournari, while the street to their houses is closed, due to a demonstration. We become viewers-listeners of the «dialogue» between two of the most emblematic figures of the Greek and International repertoire , which have been loved by the people as Greeks, as singers and as personalities.
