"Maestro" has been well-received in many countries outside Greece and even reached Hollywood, as evidenced by Demi Moore, who watched the series by Christopher Papakaliatis and was excited by the project.
On Tuesday morning, Stamatina Tsimtsili revealed to the show "Happy Days" that she was informed that the famous star wants to meet the Greek director in person because "she saw Maestro on Netflix and is excited."
The presenter's next step was to contact Papakaliatis. He told her he would be on the island while Moore was there, so they met!
The Hollywood star was captured in the summer on a video while performing a dance on the Greek island of Mykonos. She arrived in Greece in August to vacation and joined the celebrations for Veronica Pastra’s birthday.
Videos and photos from the party are going viral on the internet. In one such video, Moore can be seen singing along with the band while another video captures her dancing wildly.
The party also saw the presence of Marina Vernikova, who shared pictures from the event on her personal Instagram account.
Moore in Greece
This is far from the first time Demi Moore has chosen Greece as her holiday destination. In 2022, she posted photos on a Greek-flagged yacht.
In 2021, she enjoyed her Greek vacation accompanied with her daughter Rumer Willis. Their journey started in Athens, where they were spotted visiting designer stores in the area of Kolonaki. Then the family explored the island of Santorini and took a boat trip around it.
Finally, Moore attended a baptism and even became a godmother to a baby girl on Crete.
‘Maestro in Blue’: The First Greek Series Now Streaming on Netflix
Maestro in Blue, the acclaimed Greek television series, is on Netflix. It is the first Greek series to be picked up by the streaming service, and was created for Mega TV by Christoforos Papakaliatis, who also stars in the series.
It is the first-ever exclusive worldwide distribution deal for a Greek scripted television series on the streaming platform Netflix and will launch worldwide on Friday, March 17th, 2023.
Papakaliatis has recently stated: ”I hold Maestro very close to my heart and I feel deeply honored and happy that this story will travel around the world through Netflix. I’m looking forward to this journey.”
Maestro in Blue stars: Christoforos Papakaliatis, Haris Alexiou, Maria Kavoyianni, Fanis Mouratidis, Marisa Triantafyllidou, Giannis Tsortekis, Antinoos Albanis, Stefania Goulioti, Klelia Andriolatou, Orestis Halkias and Giorgos Benos.
The television series is set in Greece on the island of Paxos. The island actually has an interesting history, which includes naval battles, pirates, and a succession of foreign rulers. Even though it is smaller than, and not as well-known as, Corfu and Lefkada, which are also in the Ionian Sea, Paxos is very beautiful.
It follows a musician named Orestis, played by Papakaliatis, who travels to the small Greek island during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to set up a music festival from scratch.
Confronted with the small society of the island, he finds himself involved in a passionate love story that acts as a catalyst for the manifestation of all the social problems that plague an entire group of people. The characters, being connected to one another, are therefore complicit in the developments.
Speaking about the series in September 2022, Papakaliatis said, “I am very proud of this project because I think that artistically it is a unique moment, not only for me, but for everyone who was involved.”
