Savina Yannatou & Primavera en Salonico

Based on traditional material – mainly from the Mediterranean Area – Savina Yannatou and the group Primavera en Salonico offer an open sound without borders or labels, from simple songs extending to contemporary music forms.

A leading interpreter of baroque, renaissance and early musics, Savina Yannatou is one of the most respected singers in Greek music. She is known not only of her mastery of older, formal repertoire but also for her experience in avant-garde jazz. Since 1983, she has been a member of the Early Music Workshop of Athens, performing at festivals across Greece as well as further afield. 

 

The theater for the Savina Yannatou performance is offered by the Municipal Regional Theater of Rhodes

 

The National Theatre of Rhodes

The National Theatre is an imposing building on the Town Hall Square, a unique combination of the International nao Fascistic style. It is also an important specimen of the cannabic technology (Finta Pietra) and the use of glass bricks masonry in Greece. Very impressive is also the performance hall, which is very high and very long. It also has a balcony, theatre boxes and a bar.

The Theatre was built in 1937 by an unknown architect and was then called "Teatro Puccini". It was one of the most modern theatres of its era, suitable even for the performance of operas.

Today it is still used as a theatre and a cinema.
