Athens is the only European capital that does not have a building of lyric theatre. The Greek National Opera is accommodated the last 50 years in the theatre "Olympia" that despite the efforts for renovation from time to time the theatre is unsuitable.
The building site that is proposed for the construction of a New National Lyric building with datum the fact that the G.N.O. from the first day of foundation is found in the centre of Athens and the very big in scale building program that is required for the accommodation of such building, is the space of the stadium of Panathinaikos F.C. in the Alexandra’s Avenue. The prospect of reformation of the particular region and the relocation of the stadium in new site plays decisive role in the choice of this building site.
The conductor plays a very important role before and during the play. It could be said that the role of the conductor resembles a lot with the role of an architect. He is analyzing the needs of the play - building, it assembles the essential individual elements, he senses the play - processes it, and finally he is the one that with his gestures materialises it. Consequently the movement that the conductor is making can be translated into architecture. Thus the composition of the building results from the combined movements of the conductor that organises the ground plan and then the elevation.
