Greece’s foremost cultural event
The Athens and Epidaurus Festival is the city’s annual arts festival and a highlight of the Greek
summer calendar. With a legacy that spans more than sixty years’, today it incorporates a full
programme of music, theatre, dance and visual arts. Performances at the two ancient theatres of
the Odeon Herodes Atticus and the ancient theatre of Epidaurus are highlights of the festival. Both
are famous for their exemplary acoustics and many of the great works of classical playwrights, such
as Sophocles, premiered at the Epidaurus theatre in ancient times.
