The Greek heritage of the arts is as huge as the one of the civilization that was based on Democracy. Therefore, it is expected that the Athens of the 21st century preserved this tradition.
Indeed, the capital throbs of suggestions for a night outing throughout the year: concerts, theater performances, dancing, opera, ballet and panoramic shows find their way to the city's stages.
Part of the past heritage are the ancient theaters, but naturally the modern theaters are present in addition to the concert halls, the National Oper or the athletic fields - with or without change of identity.
HOT SPOTS - What we propose
If you are in the city during the summer months we suggest keeping regularly informed of the schedule of the Athens Festival that takes place at the Herodion and includes opera performances, concerts, as well as ancient and modern theater.
GREEK DANCES THEATER “DORA STRATOU”
Nights of Greek songs and dances with folk costumes by the famous dance group of Dora Stratou. A favorite tourist attraction. (Andeos Street, Philopappou Theater).
