thanks from me too. just one thing, i have downloaded a very badly computer translated programme, where it suggests that Iphigenia in Aulus is playing on 5/6 July rather than Medea. I’d be really grateful if you could clarify this for me. And so looking forward to my time in Athens!
According to the Greek press release I have it is Medea at the Epidaurus Festival on July 5 & 6. Perhaps the one you downloaded was an old schedule?
Thanks! Am looking to go there and perhaps see: Kalamata & Agrinio Municipal Regional Theatre – Vassilis Nikolaides – Euripides, Helen played at Odeon of Herodes Atticus on July 16.
Do you now if this performance is in english or greek??
Performances by Greek theater companies are in Greek …. but the theater is so amazing, I recommend reading the synopsis and then pretending you are at an opera …. ;-)
Hi Tobias, I too will be seeing some shows this season and I understand that while they are in Greek, some of them have French surtitles. Good suggestion in reading a synopsis and letting it all blissfully waft over you. I know you will love it.
I will be blogging my theatre experiences in Athens. Can’t wait!!! brendaaddie.
Am trying to fi d it if Epidaurus festival still on in September?
No, it runs through August. If you are in Athens there are usually productions taking place in the Herodion theater under the Acropolis.
http://www.greekfestival.gr/en/ is the site for the festival programme. enjoy!!! it is marvellous. I booked online, so perservere. you can also get tickets on the day (if there are any) at the box office by the Herodion theatre under the Acropolis.
I would love to see a performance on 17th august at epidaurus but cannot get any info regarding booking on line!
