Academy-Award winning composer Vangelis performed his epochal composition "Mythodea" at the Temple of Zeus in Athens, Greece, on June 28th to an audience of thousands at the site and an additional audience in the tens of thousands who watched it on a giant video screen in the Marble Stadium built for the revival of the Olympics in 1896. The concert, which was under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Culture and presented by the Hellenic Cultural Heritage Society, the entity responsible for the organization of the Cultural Olympiad, was the first major concert to be performed at the temple, which dates back to the 6th century BC. "It is a very important setting," Vangelis remarked, "with very significant energy". Featuring sopranos Kathleen Battle and Jessye Norman, the concert also included the London Metropolitan Orchestra, the 120-member chorus of the National Opera of Greece and twenty eight percussionists. The event was filmed for television and will be broadcast worldwide in the fall, 2001.
Merging his love of music, space and mythology, Mythodea was inspired by Vangelis' long time fascination with NASA's space program. And the music celebrates the NASA 2001 Mars Odyssey Mission, scheduled to arrive at the red planet in October. The concert event featured projected images of Mars from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and icons from Greek Mythology. "The saga of Martian exploration continues, now enhanced vividly by the music of Vangelis," Jim Garvin, NASA's chief scientist for the Mars Exploration Program, said in a statement included in the concert program.
Mythodea - Music for the NASA Mission: 2001 Mars Odyssey will be released on CD by Sony Classical in the fall accompanied by a DVD and VHS of the Athens concert.
