Our news - announcements


It is with great pleasure that we announce that, after two years of minimal activity due to Covid 19, the Musical Workshop Labyrinth will now be able to present a full program of seminars this coming summer. It is only unfortunate that these seminars will not be able to take place in our home village of Houdetsi due to the extensive damages which our building and indeed the entire village has suffered. For that reason, we will conduct these seminars in the town of Anogia (June & July), a historic town on mount Ida with a long and rich musical tradition. We are extremely grateful to the offer of hospitality for this year and we hope to be able next year to return to Houdetsi to the new building which is currently being prepared for us.

Special measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the state-issued regulations, Labyrinth Musical Workshop has ensured that special measures will be applied to its Garden (performance venue) this summer in order to protect the health of those present in the venue (audiences, artists, employees). We would like to inform the public that all events will be carried out with the utmost safety, under very strict regulations.

More specifically, Labyrinth Musical Workshop has adopted all health measures issued by the Greek government with regard to live events held at open-air venues and has incorporated said measures to its set of regulations. These special measures aim at keeping audiences safe both upon entering and upon exiting the venue, as well as for the entire time they remain at the venue.

Audiences are strongly advised to arrive in time, namely 0,5-1 hour before the start of the performance, due to the limited number of seats, in order to avoid delay and crowding. Audiences arriving after the start of the performance will not be admitted to the venue.

We ask for the audience's understanding and their cooperation in implementing measures and adhering to the regulations.

Audiences must be aware of the following:

  • The use of non-medical masks is mandatory upon entering, exiting the theatre venues AND DURING THE SHOWS. Audience members must keep their masks on.
  • A minimum distance of 1,5 metres must be kept between individuals from & towards the venue.
  • Crowding in the entrance & all public areas must be avoided.
  • Moving portable seats is also prohibited, given that all seats are designated in compliance with the physical distance instructions that have been issued by the health authorities.
  • Audiences must comply with the instructions of the staff .
