Χορογραφημένα Σιντριβάνια: Ωράριο - Εικόνα
15 July 2019

The Dancing Fountains at the SNFCC Canal include 59 vertical water jets in line with the architectural design by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, together with 10 swiveling fountains, forming a powerful light, sound, and water display that captivate visitors day and night: Special LED lights are installed underwater. The Dancing Fountains have constructed thanks to the initiative and funding of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

Starting from September, the dancing fountains’ schedule extends to two more water shows, choreographed to the songs of Nikos Skalkottas and Dmitri Shostakovich. The aforementioned songs will be played every half hour from 11 am, taking turns with the music of Hadjidakis and Bizet, to which the show has been presented until now.

More specifically, the water shows have been choreographed to the following music pieces:

  • Nikos Skalkottas, Epirot Dance (Ser. I/4), from the 36 Greek Dances
  • Dmitri Shostakovich, Waltz II, from the Suite for Jazz Orchestra No. 2
  • Manos Hadjidakis, Dance with my Shadow, από το Gioconda’s Smile
  • George Bizet, Habanera, from Carmen Suite, No. 2

The daily time schedule* for the Dancing Fountains in October is:

11.00, 12.00, 13.00 και 20.00, 21.00, 22.00, 23.00, 00.00 (Skalkottas and Shostakovich)

11.30, 12.30, 13.30 και 20.30, 21.30, 22.30, 23.30 (Hadjidakis and Bizet)

* Weather permitting

 

On Sunday 20/10 the dancing fountains’ morning water shows (11.00-13.30) will not take place due to scheduled Sup & Kayak Demos at the SNFCC Canal.
