  • Athens: Ancient Greek Theater Performance

    1. Athens: Ancient Greek Theater Performance

    Watch a unique, funny and touching play, right next to the Acropolis museum. Do not leave Greece without joining that thrilling experience, a theater performance given by actors talking in English and learn about some of the most interesting myths related to ancient Greece. The story goes like this: “During his visit to the Acropolis, a present-day tourist slips and gets knocked out. When he awakens, he finds himself transported to the 5th century B.C, Athens. There, he will have an intense talk with Medea, watch the daughters of Oedipus grieve, chase the god of Wealth himself around the Parthenon and find out how Odysseus solved a Cyclopean problem.”

    Came on honeymoon, and spotted this little gem in the activities lists. We both love theater - and ancient Greek theater is a fave - so we went for it! It was brilliant. The handmade masks were beautiful. The players were not just talented, it was also clear how hard they work at every aspect. It's a well oiled machine at this point! We loved the excerpts, and the tie-in story. On top of all that, the rooftop views are wonderful. The backdrop above the stage is a lit-up Acropolis, and all around you can see the city spread out, lights a-twinkling, moon shining. It was just great, and we'd highly recommend it!

A great experience for a slightly different evening. The theater is located on a roof terrace behind the Roman agora at the foot of the Acopolis, the view alone is worth a visit. The play itself was lovingly staged and we laughed a lot, but it is more aimed at an adult audience. The time has just passed by.

A must for early Greek evening !!! Very pleasant moment with an introduction to mythology, a troupe full of energy, the spirit of Greek theater comes alive during an unforgettable evening !!! To recommend

Show was great and the open air theatre has spectacular views of the city. Really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend

A brief entertaining performance into Greek mythology
