The National Theatre of Greece at the airport!
This Friday, September 22nd, we are welcoming the National Theatre of Greece at the Athens International Airport!
In the framework of the cultural programme “Fly me to the Moon”, the National Theatre will present extracts from the new musical performance “Momo”, by the Young Peoples' Stage, directed by Eleni Efthymiou. A show full of humour, dancing and suspense, certain to thrill passengers and airport visitors of all ages!
Award winning German author Michael Ende uses fantasy and symbolism to talk about nature, the value of time, stress and consumerism, through a, seemingly simple, childrens’ story. A fairytale addressed to children that yearn for joy of life and play, and to adults that, in a mercilessly fast world, are forgetting to live.
Ende’s landmark book was first published in Germany in 1973, translated to more than 40 languages and praised by critics and philosophers as "one of the most remarkable novels of the late 20th century".
