Staged over two acts, with choreography and libretto by Lorca Massine, the world premier season in 1988 and again in 1990 broke all attendance records in Verona. The production has gone on to perform all around the world, touching the hearts and souls of all who see it.
Witnessing the power of the all famous final “syrtaki” dance, against the backdrop of the Panathenaic Stadium will be nothing short of amazing.
Alexis Zorba is a middle-aged man of many contradictions, full of life and passion, who lives by the beat of his own drum, free of moral constraints. Zorba is a story of love, friendship and passion.
