SOTIRIA IS MY NAME by Sofia Adamidou (01/12/2015)

A few hours before major surgery that resulted in her losing her voice, the great folk singer doesn’t stop talking about her eventful life: her early years in Chalkida, her departure for Athens a day after the outbreak of the Greek-Italian war, her cooperation with Tsitsanis, the legendary Rebetiko composer... A blend of roughness and sensitivity, present and past, love and hate, reveal an explosive personality who doesn’t lose, not even for a moment, her humour and passion for life.
The play written by journalist, Sofia Adamidou, to whom Bellou herself had granted permission to write her biography, is staged for the first time at the NTNG, directed by Christina Chatzivasileiou.  Sotiria Bellou is played by Efi Stamouli.
