Athens & Epidaurus Festival

Musical concerts, theatrical performances, ancient dramas, lectures and many more events will be held at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and various places around Athens. Important artists will make their Greek debuts during the festival (Romeo Castellucci, Guy Cassiers, Michael Thalheimer, Alain Platel, Esa-Pekka Salonen) while productions of well respected international institutions will take place (Brooklyn Academy of Music, Old Vic, Festival d’ Avignon, Wiener Festwochen).

The Athens-Epidaurus Festival has come a long way since its beginning but today it is one of the most important cultural events in Greece. It was in September 1938 when ancient drama was performed at the Theatre of Epidaurus for the first time since ancient times. The National Theatre production of Electra, a tragedy by Sophocles, was presented there under the soft evening light, as there was no electric power.

The festival is a great celebration that has lasted 53 summers and hosted some of the leading lights of theatre, music and dance. This year will be happening from to June to September in Athens.

Check the full programme in and don’t miss it!
