Why not try something different this summer?

Greece is well known for its picturesque islands, sparkling blue sea, cloudless azure skies, and endless sunny days, but there is more; so much more.

Visit Athens and discover Greek culture; for three glorious months, usually from the end of May, or beginning of June, right through to the start of September, the unique capital city of Greece, is home to the Athens Festival, a magical summer of theatre, music and dance.

 The narrow winding alleys, airy city squares, open-air theatres, and parks of Athens, for the past fifty six summers, have been host to Maria Callas, Pavarotti, Nureyev, Fonteyn, Martha Graham, The Peking Opera, and The New York Philharmonic Orchestra, to name but a few.

Just a couple of hours drive away from the amazing city of Athens, lies Epidaurus, home to the most beautiful, ancient theatre in the world, where, in September 1938, Sophocles’ “Electra”, was staged, the first play performed there since the times of the ancients.

Now, each summer weekend, as the sun slowly disappears, and the cool of evening begins, talented actors and actresses, take you back, way, way back, to another era, to the mystical times of ancient Greece.

To find out more about this summer of Greek culture; what’s on, and where, see the link to the official site of the “Festival of Athens and Epidaurus” at the end of the post, but, before you do that, have a look at some of the beautiful posters, created to promote this once-in-a lifetime experience.

This year’s posters for the 2017 Athens- Epidaurus Festival, were designed by Iphigenia Basileiou, based on three mythical creatures from Greek mythology; the Sphinx, Pegasus and the Minotaur.

  1. Oh a fellow blogger, Olympia at Things and Thoughts, wrote about a concert there several years ago and ever since I've wanted to attend one. Afraid until we get that residency permit we are seeking we will need to be out of the country and will miss it again. Thanks for this reminder of the cup of culture we could sip from and it is just down the road!

    1. How are things going with your permit?
      Maybe you'll be lucky, and get to see it next time, it's on all through the summer.

  2. The posters remind me of warm summer nights in both Athens and Epidavros.
    I believe there is a boat service between Phaleron, near Athens, and Epidavros put on especially for the Epidavros festival.
