Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival is a celebration of new opera bringing artists and audiences together to explore what only the UKs largest Festival of new opera can –not what opera is, but what it might become.
The Olympus Festival started in 1972 in Pieria in the Central Macedonia region, and continues to offer high-quality artistic events every July and August. The programme includes ancient and modern theatre, dance, music and visual arts, performed by Greek and international artists. Venues are rich in historical and cultural value, such as the ancient theatre of Dion, the Platamon castle, Ancient Pydna, Ancient Livithra, the Mediterranean Mosaics Centre and the church of Panagia Kontariotissas.
Every August, the Edinburgh International Festival transforms Scotland’s capital, one of the world’s most beautiful and historic cities, to present 3 exhilarating weeks of the finest creators and performers from the worlds of music, theatre, opera and dance. The festival’s unique brand values have been created over nearly 70 years of extraordinary creative activity and are rooted in a profound belief in the power of the arts and culture to transform individual lives and national ambitions.
