The country is also a major producer and consumer of lamb; beef, pork, and especially chicken are also popular. The poet regards it as the worst; the presence of evil was explained by the myth of Pandora, when all of the best of human capabilities, save hope, had been spilled out of her overturned jar.

In 1999, an extensive renovation was undertaken by its owners. There's also an English-speaking Al-Anon group in Corfu that meets weekly. Afterwards one might socialise, or retire to the spacious comfort of one's room. The latest subjects being discussed are: It also has the benefit of air-conditioning throughout as well as central heating making it ideal for all year round living. It was the Teatro San Giacomo (now the City Hall) named after the nearby Roman Catholic cathedral (completed in 1691). [61] In Venetian rule, the Corfiotes developed a fervent appreciation of Italian opera, which was the real source of the extraordinary (given conditions in the mainland of Greece ) musical development of the island during this era. [62] The opera house of Corfu during 18th and 19th century was that of the Nobile Teatro di San Giacomo, named after the neighbouring catholic cathedral, but the theatre was later converted into the City Hall. [62] It was both the first theatre and first opera house of Greece in modern times and the place where the first Greek opera, Spyridon Xyndas ' "The Parliamentary Candidate" based on an exclusively Greek libretto was performed. [62] A long series of local composers, such as Nikolaos Mantzaros, Spyridon Xyndas, Antonio Liberali, Domenico Padovani, the Zakynthian Pavlos Carrer, the Lambelet family, Spyridon Samaras, and others, all developed careers intertwined with the theatre. [62] San Giacomo's place was taken by the Municipal Theatre in 1902, which maintained the operatic tradition vividly until its destruction during World War II as a result of a 1943 German air raid. [62] The first opera to be performed in the San Giacomo was in 1733 (" Gerone, tiranno di Siracusa "), [62] and for almost two hundred years, between 1771 and 1943, nearly every major opera from the Italian tradition, as well as many others from Greek and French composers, were performed on the stage of the San Giacomo; this impressive tradition, invoking an exceptional musical heritage, continues to be reflected in Corfiote operatic mythology, a fixture in famous opera singers' itineraries. [63] The Municipal Theatre of Corfu ( Greek: Δημοτικό Θέατρο Κέρκυρας) has been the main theatre and opera house in Corfu, Greece since 1902. [64] The theatre was the successor of Nobile Teatro di San Giacomo di Corfù which became the Corfu city hall.
