The musical "Into the Woods" universally accessible at the Greek National Opera!

Updated: Jan 23


On the 5th of January 2024 at 20:00 and on the 7th of January 2024 at 19:30 at the Alternative Stage.


Part of the series of actions "All Together At The Opera" of the GNO Learning & Participation Department.


The masterpiece and Tony award-winning musical "Into the Woods" by leading composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim and the great writer James Lapine returns to the GNO Alternative Stage, at the SNFCC, in the new approved version for piano and percussion. "Into the Woods" is a dark coming-of-age tale, full of fascinating melodies, constant plot twists, disarming humour and an evocative atmosphere. The Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and his Beanstalk, and Rapunzel all wander off deep into the woods and get involved in a modular story that reverses their known paths and evolves in a totally unpredictable and gripping way, exactly like life.



In the forest, a blonde woman looks into the mirror and within it, she turns into a witch.

Into the woods of the GNO Alternative Stage

After a  run of sold-out performances in February 2020 which was abruptly interrupted by the pandemic, the successful musical "Into the Woods" continues its enchanting journey on the GNO Alternative Stage with a production of high aesthetic value. The musical direction and coaching is by Stathis Soulis. The sets and costumes have been designed by Lina Pigadioti-Tzima and they are pieces carefully chosen from earlier productions of the Greek National Opera that are now being revealed anew in front of the audience, while Sakis Birbilis’ lighting design contributes to the creation of a fairytale-like and dark atmosphere. The movement is by Konstantinos Kounellas.

The challenging role of the Witch is portrayed by popular actress and singer Nadia Kontogeorgi, one of the most talented artists of her generation. Alongside her, an ensemble of talented performers including Hara Kefala, Apostolis Psychramis, Dimitris Ayiopetritis-Bogdanos, Maria Grampsa, Eleuterio Calpaktsides, Nicolas Karagiaouris, Thanos Lekkas, Lito Messini, Danai Moutsopoulou, Olga Papakonstantinou, and Lydia Tzanoudaki.

With the participation of musicians Theo Vazakas and Costas Seremetis on percussion and Christos Sakellaridis on the piano.
