Olympic Soccer Academy… It’s the kick-off that every family has been waiting for!

The Olympic Lagoon Resort’s family entertainment and activities programme has established itself as the richest, most varied and professional resort animation programme on the island. In fact, it is often the X-factor that gives holidaymakers the decisive push to finalize their holiday reservations.
And now, we are proud to announce yet another dimension in the programme: the Olympic Soccer Academy.
What’s the buzz?
It is safe to say that soccer is one of the most popular sports around the world. From Ronaldo to Messi, football idols are what many a child’s dreams are made of; and an hour of kicking and passing can make a youngster’s day complete.
That’s why our entertainment team developed the Olympic Soccer Academy. Comprising three age groups – the Mini Kickers (3 to 6-year-olds), the Junior Kickers (7 to 11-year-olds) and the Kook Kickers (12+ years old) – this holiday academy is a 5-day course, complete with certificate and acknowledgement of progress and performance.
From Monday to Saturday, with a break on Wednesday, the participants enjoy professional training based on the Triple P philosophy: Prep, Practise, and Play. It’s a morning hour (or 45 minutes for the Mini Kickers) of targeted coaching the fun way, where children develop their skills as well as a team spirit, making holiday friends along the way.
Part of the package
Just in case you’re wondering, there is absolutely no extra charge for the Olympic Soccer Academy – it’s just one of the many ways we continuously try to upgrade and enrich your holiday experience.
Although it is not a strict requirement, we do recommend that you register your children before your arrival at the hotel. That will allow you to secure a place in the appropriate group and make sure your children don’t miss a single session.
Our coaches look forward to welcoming you!

The 17th Pafos Aphrodite Festival presents Gioachino Rossini’s popular, romantic opera La Cenerentola – Cinderella

Kanika Hotels, Pafos, Cyprus - March 13, 2015

Opera 2015

Paphos Aphrodite Festival

Pafos Aphrodite Festival 2015 opens its curtain presenting the enjoyable, pleasant opera La Cenerentola (Cinderella) by the famous Italian composer Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868) on September 4, 5 and 6 at the Medieval Castle in Pafos in co-production with the French lyric organisation Ramfis Productions Avignon and the participation of the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra.

Rossini’s fascinating opera La Cenerentola or ossia La bontà in trionfo (Cinderella or Goodness Triumphant) is a dramma giocoso, that is, a comic drama, in two acts based on the famous fairy tale Cendrillon (Cinderella) by Charles Perrault.  The libretto was written by Jacopo Ferretti and it premiered at the Valle theatre in Rome on January 25, 1817 and since then constitutes one of the most-performed operas worldwide. The operatic version varies from the classic fairy tale of Cinderella since the element of magical intervention is removed by substituting the fairy godmother with a male character who helps the heroine go to the ball because of the kindness she has showed him, the mean step-mother is replaced by a vain step-father who dreams of rich husbands for his daughters in order to reclaim his former wealth while the prince does not recognize Cinderella by her slipper but from her bracelet.  The theme of this opera relates to, teaches and enchants audiences even today since it grabbles with the timeless issues of social class separation, the desire for social climbing, wealth and glory, greediness, selfishness, wickedness and vanity which exist in our modern societies teaching us however, that goodness, virtue and spiritual nobility can prevail.  Rossini and Ferreti remove the element of magical intervention in order to show that the pure heart, kindness, bravery and generosity of Cinderella are the stepping stone for her personal and social happiness.

The melodic, full of images and emotions music of the opera, characteristics of the music talent of Rossini in combination with the inspired sets and costumes of the production will carry the music loving audience to a fairy tale world where a prince can fall in love with a poor girl and where evil can be repaid with love.
