Petit Opera du Monde


The “Petit Opera du Monde” was born in Paris from the idea of establishing a “different” institution for Lyric Art, far from all the existing ones!

An institution in the international theatre ambience, that it’s plays wouldn’t be products of huge ensembles and formations, but of young and avant-garde artists.

Since it’s institution the P.O.D.M. has already presented nine productions within four years:

seven operas and two theatre plays, getting started from baroque and combining theatre to opera.

Plays,that are rarely staged in big theatres, have been presented in Athens, Milan and Paris with great success, bringing on stage new voices, beautifull music and colorful imagination.

International critics (Opera, Bruno Vilien- L’ Opera, Sabino Lenoci- Opera Now G.Svolos – Concert Classique,  V. Cornubert) as well as the pubblic embrassed the project , contributing to it’s growth within the musical- theatrical world.

The beginning was in Athens’National Opera with Charpantier’s “Medea” followed by  Lulli’s “Atys”, Paisiello’s “Barbier of Seville”, whitch is edited and distributed internationally by Kicco Music.

Last January we presented  P.O.D.M. musical ensemple for the first time, in Mozart’s “Cosi fan tutte” and with the direction of  the internationally famous greek soprano Mata Katsouli.

During April we realized a master class with the famous mezzo soprano Elena Obratsova, that had great resonance.

We have realized also 29 Baroque and Classical Music concerts, lyrical conserts-gala and lindt.

All these productions have been supported esclusively by sponsorship.


In 2012 has been staged in Athens Concert Hall – in collaboration with all the Greek-French schools in Athens- the contemporary oratorio by Eleftherios Kalkanis “ Paul, Angel of Nations”, on verses by Ilias Liamis, and was sold out.

In August -September 2012 the PODM contributed in the organization of the 1st Medieval Byzantine Festival of Kastoria “Alexiada”


We hope that P.O.D.M. will be established as an institution that offers both lyrical theatre plays  and education for young artists all over Europe.

Having as starting point Greece we open our range of action for co-productions with Italy, France, Cyprus, Turkey and Baltimore Opera-U.S.A.
