Singer Haris Alexiou, one of Greece's greatest stars, is expected to return to Israel fifteen years after her previous performance in the Jewish state.


Alexiou, who rose to fame at the beginning of the 1970s after joining forces with singer George Dalaras, is considered Greece's diva. She is extremely popular in Israel as well, and Hebrew versions of her songs have been recorded by Israeli singers, including Yehuda Poliker, Yardena Arazi and Miki Gavrielov.


Poliker is due to be a guest performer at Alexiou's upcoming concert in the Caesarea amphitheater.


Alexiou performed in Israel in 1991 and returned for two additional concerts two years later.


In 2001, she was scheduled to perform in Tel Aviv and Caesarea, but two days before the first concert and after 4,000 tickets were sold, her visit was called off due to a mysterious "food poisoning" among her band members. The Greek singer denied that the cancellation was politically motivated.
