2 time Greek Eurovision Entrant and Eurovision Presenter, Sakis Rouvas, is back in one of his most challenging roles to date.
We always thought Sakis was a “Greek God” but now it is official. He now stars as the ancient God “Dionysus” – The God of Fertility and Wine and later considered a patron of the arts. He is said to have invented wine and spread the art of tending grapes. He has a dual nature. On the one hand bringing joy and divine ecstasy. On the other brutal, unthinking, rage. Thus, reflecting both sides of wines nature. If he chooses, Dionysus can drive a man crazy.
This trailer of Sakis is for a theatrical play, the Greek tragedy, “Vakhes” by Evripides. He was one of the most well known ancient Greek writers. “Vakhes” is one of his most well known and most acted plays in Greece. Sakis himself has been very excited about this project and has been walking his fans through all of his rehearsals on his social media channels.
Also Sakis has a new song released “Μια χαρά να περνάς/Mia hara na pernas/A Pleasure to Spend” that he performed recently at the MAD TV Awards in Greece. It is a soft rock ballad, yet when it is in the hands of Sakis, he is able to move those legs and hips like no other. It is an undeniable hit for him again as he is still one of Greece’s most popular artists – as you can hear from the audience reaction.
What next for the “Greek God”?
