Melina: The Last Greek Goddess Comes To Astoria

The Hellenic Cultural Center presents renowned Cypriot actress, Paola Hadjilambri, in “Melina: The Last Greek Goddess” by Paul Lambis for three nights only – October 27, 28 and 29, at the Hellenic Cultural Center in Astoria.

“Melina: The Last Greek Goddess”, a one-woman play, brings to life the dynamic, larger-than-life persona of Melina Mercouri, whose international acting achievements on stage and screen, and her zestful commitment to Greek art and politics, defined her as Greece’s most celebrated national heroine.

Poignant, passionate, seductive and controversial, the play illustrates a remarkable life of a political activist who sought to symbolise the soul of Greek national identity. An outspoken woman of principle, Melina was a strong advocate for the return of the Parthenon Marbles, from the British Museum to Greece.

This exuberant production creates a gripping theatrical experience and features compelling music that exists as a trademark for Greece. The play runs 65 minutes and stars Paola Hadjilambri who also co-wrote.
