Athens Epidaurus Festival

Celebrating culture

For almost 70 years now, the Festival has been a benchmark of Greek summertime, and it sparks the interest of art lovers, presenting to the public classical performances, such as ancient drama, as well as avant-garde productions. Eminent creators of the Greek and international stage will meet together this summer to celebrate theatre, dance, music and opera. 

The venues that will host the Festival events join the past with the present. On the one hand the imposing Odeon of Herodes Atticus and on the other hand the industrial complex of Peiraios 260. 

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

Built below the sacred rock of the Acropolis in the 2nd century BC, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus has hosted legendary artists including Maria Callas, Herbert von Karajan, Rudolf Nureyev, and Leonard Bernstein, to name a few. This year, festival lovers will have the opportunity to enjoy unique nights with artists representing the whole musical spectrum.  The most historical spot in Athens will be flooded by sounds and images from big orchestras and concerts of international and Greek solo artists and groups.

Peiraios 260

The industrial space of Peiraios 260 represents for many years now the ideal destination for those seeking the Festival atmosphere with a more alternative and avant-garde twist. In a contemporary architectural landscape established Greek and international artists unfold their fresh and creative ideas in the areas of theater and modern dance. The events experienced by spectators and visitors are filled with music and social gatherings that close the Festival with satisfaction and delight.
