A Performance At Epidaurus

Classical performances at the ancient theater are usually given Friday and Saturday and sometimes Sunday at around 9pm June through September. Many productions are staged by the National Theater of Greece, some by foreign companies. Ticket prices range from 20€ to 60€. For the latest ticket prices and other information, contact the Athens and Epidaurus Festival, at the Epidaurus theater or in Athens at 39 Panepestimiou (greekfestival.gr; tel. 210/928-2900).

The ancient tragedies are usually performed, either in classical or modern Greek; programs usually have a full translation or synopsis of the play.
