I know, you’ve stumbled upon this page because you are looking for a concert at the Herodion, also known as the Herod Atticus Theater, or just “that Theater at the Acropolis”.

Well, if you are looking for September 2010 dates,  you are in luck, because thanks to my friend Michel, I’ve got the program for Herod Atticus Theater performances for September 2010 in the table below.

But since I’ve got you here, before you head straight to the table, let me use the fact that you’ve come here to tell you that Athens in September is fabulous and that any outdoor concert at pretty much any Greek venue is fabulous, but seeing someone like Mario Fragoulis on the schedule has particularly special meaning for me, since he was the first performer I ever say at the Herodion .  I think he was largely unknown back in 1999 when Basil and I happened to be walking past the Herodion and noticed something was happening that night, so we bought tickets and went in, not knowing anything more than that we’d be hearing something by a Greek composer named Markopoulos.  I actually had a video camera with me, and managed to capture much of the evening on tape (this was long before eveyone could record on their cell phones, so my tape is particularly meaningful to me. That night was the night I truly fell in love the Greek audience, and to this day, they’ve never disappointed me.

Back to this venue – when I say get yourself to Athens and get a ticket to one of these September concerts at the Herodion,  you should know that it’s not just my “go Greece” self writing something to promote my adopted country. I think so much of the experience that last year when the Herod Atticus Theater schedule was announced, I got my parents from Chicago on a plane to Athens so they could experience the magic in person. (Yep, there’s my dad, Bob, during the Jose Carreras concert).

Update:  Two performances of the Archanians by Aristophanes have been added to the September schedule. See details here.

By Athensguide

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
