The Athens ‘Megaron’ Concert Hall on Wednesday announced changes to its programme of events on Thursday, due to work stoppages announced by its staff union.

A lecture on “Did the Ptolemies have a steam-powered pump?” by Prof. Theodosis Tasios has been postponed until Tuesday, February 2 at 19:00. Entry will be free of charge with the distribution of tickets starting at 17:30 on the same day.
A performance of the play “The Marriage of Figaro” has been postponed until 21:00 and a planned performance of the play “Around the World in 80 Days” has been cancelled.

The Megaron staff union SEOMMA decided to hold two three-hour work stoppages on Thursday, from 10:00-13:00 and 18:00-21:00 in protest about delays in payment of wages and uncertainty and insecurity about the future of the concert hall and their jobs, warning that this was the start of a “new series of mobilisations”.
