ATHENS EPIDAURUS FESTIVAL 2019
Between June and August, the Athens & Epidaurus Festival is organized at various historic and modern venues across Athens and Epidaurus like Odeon Herodes Atticus Theatre, Greek National Opera, the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus in the Peloponnese and many other spaces around Athens and Piraeus.
The spectacular open-air theatre of Odeon Herodes Atticus provides a magical setting at the base of the Acropolis. The Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus is world-famous for its unparalleled acoustics and elegant aesthetics, located on the southeast end of the sanctuary dedicated to the ancient Greek God of medicine, Asclepius. The Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus is located at the port of ancient Epidaurus and was built in honour of god Dionysus to host religious ceremonies.
This summer, music lovers can look forward to spellbinding evenings featuring leading symphony orchestras, brilliant classical soloists and concerts with world-renowned contemporary musicians.
