Dinner Cruise to Epidaurus for Phedre – July 11, 2009

Title: Dinner Cruise to Epidaurus Phedre Performance
Location: Ancient Theater at Epidaurus
Description: The National Theatre of Great Britain’s presents Phedre starring Helen Mirren in the title role (the performance will be in English with Greek subtitles – a special treat to see something there in English, although I’ve seen performances in Ancient Greek, didn’t understand a word, and the experience was still an amazing one!). Cruise there in style on the Mantalena from Zea Marina in Pireaus to the Old Port of Epidavrus enjoying a Buffet Dinner while on board. Guests will then be transferred by coach to the world famous theatre to enjoy the Ted Hughes version of this play. After the performance guests are transferred back to the Ship for the relaxing cruise back to Pireaus – this will long last as one of the highlights of a trip to Athens!
