DETAILED PROGRAM 2021

The Festival European Polyphony celebrates its 3rd edition in Rhodes, from October 22 to 31, 2021.

 

To announce the program and the coming of the French choir Mikrokosmos, the Festival has produced a French-Greek film, which shows the backstage of the artists.

 

The short film "Passion" was shot with the Mikrokosmos choir, actors from France and from the island of Rhodes. It takes you on a 20 minutes’ journey following the story of a young Greek man who decides to leave the island of Rhodes, to live his dream and try to integrate the French choir Mikrokosmos. It was shot between lockdowns, in Paris, Vierzon and Rhodes, a medieval Greek city listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 

The film "Passion / Πάθος" is available on the Festival's YouTube channel:  https://youtu.be/jX5y3o4yELg
