Vangelis Eureka Music Concert Live at Rotterdam 1991
This is a very rare DVD from the amazing concert performed by Vangelis during the celebration of the european scientific project "Eureka".
This concert took place at the beautiful docks in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in 18th July 1991, where a floating stage was made for Vangelis with his synths and the choir, surrounded by Greek ornaments. Some buildings and boats around were animated by projections of colors and laseranimation.

The word comes from Ancient Greek εὕρηκα heúrēka "I have found (it)", which is the 1st person singular perfect indicative active of the verb heuriskō "I find".The reconstructed Ancient Greek pronunciation is [hěu̯rɛːka], while the Modern Greek pronunciation is [ˈevrika].
This exclamation is most famously attributed to the ancient Greek scholar Archimedes; he reportedly proclaimed "Eureka!" when he stepped into a bath and noticed that the water level rose—he suddenly understood that the volume of water displaced must be equal to the volume of the part of his body he had submerged. This meant that the volume of irregular objects could be measured with precision, a previously intractable problem. He is said to have been so eager to share his realisation that he leapt out of his bathtub and ran through the streets of Syracuse naked..
