Theophrastos Sakellaridis’ masterwork composition Perouzé will be presented at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus as part of the Athens and Epidaurus Festival. It originally premiered on 9 August 1911 at the Olympia Theatre. A smashing success, it ran for two seasons and was performed throughout Greece. Perouzé was last presented in 1950 at the Greek National Opera.
