We had a great show at the National Opera House in Athens! Wow - what a venue! It was a free show put on by the Summer Nostos Festival. It was our first time presenting this piece in a country where English is not universally spoken, so I was unclear how it might resonate. Would the humor translate? Was it too “American” to be meaningful to a Greek audience. They projected subtitles, and it seemed to all work fine. It was a packed house and a great audience - big standing ovation for the Kronos Quartet. Thank you to Christos Konstantakopoulos for making the screening happen. We’re off for the summer now - more screenings in the fall and then…

Just got back from great screenings of A Thousand Thoughts at the Barbican in London and the Brighton Dome in Brighton. In a few weeks we head to Athens, Greece to do a show at the National Opera House. This photo was taken last month after a show we did at the Castro Theatre as part of the San Francisco International Film Festival. It was a great hometown event, and we won the festival audience award to boot! (Photo: Pamela Gentile)
