Athens and Epidaurus Festival
Athens Festival 2012 |

The Athens Festival 2012 comes full circle on Wednesday 18 July with Marianna Kavallieratou’s minimal choreography “Auto Run”. On Tuesday 17 July meanwhile there is a unique opportunity to attend Mikis Theodorakis’ and Pablo Neruda’s Canto General, the “bible of Latin America, a great hymn to the nature and humanity of a continent”, interpreted by the legendary figures of Maria Farandouri and Petros Pandis.

Epidaurus Festival on the other hand reaches its peak featuring among other interesting performances The Knights by Aristophanes at the Ancient Theatre and Antigone by Sophocles at the Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus.

An evening at Delphi



Discover the Ancient Theatre of Delphi that opens for a unique performance combining theatre, poetry and music. Well known actors will recite extracts from ancient Greek tragedies and poems they love, while the New Hellenic Quartet will perform works by Ravel, Mozart and Skalkottas along with the soprano Lenia Zapheiropoulos and the clarinetist Dionyssis Grammenos.

Built in the 4th c. B.C. further up the hill from the Temple of Apollo, the theatre presented its seated audiences with spectacular views of the entire sanctuary below and the valley beyond. An amazing site, a unique evening. Don’t miss it. Book your seats now.
