Our trip to Athens included a show at The Odeon. The ancient theater (Roman era but built by a Greek) is still in use many days of the week. The show we took in was flamenco dancing and music to a capacity crowd of 5,000....More

Maybe it was just our lucky timing, but it appears there was going to be a concert in the theater. A crew was setting up equipment and a pianist was sound checking his equipment together with the sound technician. The acoustics were magical and we...More

You may not understand Greek but seeing any event in a 1500 year old theater is wonderful. They provide cushions since you are sitting on marble. The steps to the seats are high, but you can see and hear everything from all seats. Impressive!

We saw the Odeon on our way off the Akropolis and thought... this must be great at night. A quick search yielded “Athens Revisited”, a broad Music Event hosted by Marios Frangoulis. It was fantastic. When in Athens go there for any event where the...More
