This is a performance-proposal that Eleni Vitali and her great partnershave created with a lot of passion, talent and imagination.
The audience’s enthusiasm and manifestation of love in the sold-out concerts act as a catalyst for the continuation of the performances.
The great singer Eleni Vitali is the protagonist and host of this festivity.
She has chosen to sing some of her biggest hits, as well as many songs that have been created or performed by her favourite artists (Marios Tokas, Dimitris Mitropanos, Sokratis Malamas, Orfeas Peridis, Nikos Papazoglou, Manolis Rasoulis, Takis Soukas, Stelios Kazantzidis, Giannis Papaioannou etc.)
All the above are connected by the fine line of the optimism, adolescent spirit andopen-heartedness that characterizes the performance organizers EleniVitali and Nikos Ksidis.
Their firm intention is that the audience and the artists unify; that they become a family and have a wonderful time.
Eleni Vitali’s brilliant performance, which takes on numerous aspects and different forms, Nikos Ksidis’s and Tzoum’s original and aesthetic orchestrations and Violeta Ikari’s great presence constitute the solid basis thanks to which ‘Eleni’s Festivity’ is considered as one of the best performances of the past years.
The picture is completed by the charismatic presence of the great clarinetist and solist Manos Achalinotopoulos.
