On Saturday 30/11 at 6 pm, the SNFCC Christmas World comes to life through a literally dazzling show!
Come enjoy the most brilliant Christmas experience, witnessing SNFCC’s different areas transform one after the other into a place of magic, bathed in light and filled with music and dance!
Thousands of Christmas lights twinkle on trees along the Canal; the lavishly decorated tall Christmas trees at the Agora are revealed in all their glory, and the light installations in the Stavros Niarchos Park playfully interact with visitors. The Ice Rink once again comes alive as the first skaters glide on fresh ice to the sounds of the GNO Children’s Choir*. Christmas tunes also inspire the Canal’s Dancing Fountains to take part in the dancing mood in their own, spectacular way.
The celebration culminates with the time-honored party at the Agora – this year we hit the ground dancing with the SOUL queen Idra Kayne and her ultimate Christmas live concert that sets the festive tone.
The SNFCC Christmas World comes alive thanks to an exclusive grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
* The GNO Children's Choir will be accompanied by a brass and wind quintet consisting of members and partners of the Greek National Opera Orchestra.
Konstantinos Nikas, trumpet
Nikos Sarris, trumpet
Christos Kaloudis, horn
Spyros Farougkias, trombone
Giannis Boikos, tuba
Panagiotis Ziavras, percussion
The songs for the brass quintet and the Children's Choir are covered by Alexandros Katsios.
