It seems that every day a large number of visitors come to my website looking for information on upcoming George Dalaras concerts. Sometimes they come looking for Yorgos, or Giorgos or Ntalara, even יורגוס דלאראס and just today: йоргос даларас (impressively Google properly backtranslated it for me from the Russian: Giorgos Dalaras) concerts and performances. Since I generally post this information as soon as I find it, the absence of any at this point is a pretty clear indication that I’ve no clue where George is. But since do feel a little compelled to at least share what I know, even though it won’t help those in Athens currently or planning on visiting Athens in the near future, I thought I’d let you know that my assumption is he is hard at working completing the Kavafis Project. It’s something he’s be collaborating on with composer Alexandros Karozas for a number of years, and finally 2011 will see its premiere. Sadly, it won’t premiere in Athens, but rather in Vienna, at the Vienna Koncerthaus on November 26, 2011.

Stay tuned though, because I’m still on the lookout for George appearances in Greece in 2011 and as soon as I learn anything, you’ll read about it here. Until then, you can enjoy a bit of last winter’s show at Polis Stage:

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
