      The first Greek orchestra ever to appear at the Proms, Armonia Atenea, and Artistic Director George Petrou, presents a programme with an appropriately classical flavour. Greek myths form the thread through a Baroque labyrinth of arias and overtures from French, German and Italian operas, including Gluck’s Orphée, Handel’s Arianna in Creta and Lully’s Phaeton.
