Full description
Watch a unique, funny and touching play, right next to the Acropolis museum. Do not leave Greece without joining that thrilling experience, a theater performance given by actors talking in English and learn about some of the most interesting myths related to ancient Greece. The story goes like this: “During his visit to the Acropolis, a present-day tourist slips and gets knocked out. When he awakens, he finds himself transported to the 5th century B.C, Athens. There, he will have an intense talk with Medea, watch the daughters of Oedipus grieve, chase the god of Wealth himself around the Parthenon and find out how Odysseus solved a Cyclopean problem.”

You'll have a seat on the terrace below the Acropolis, the show played with this lighted background. It is mesmerizing. The hospitality is first class, tha actors and the short interpretations quite enjoyable. I would recommend as a must if you have a chance to attend. There are some adult verbal conetent in the show.

Great way of spending an evening and get to know more about Greek theatre. There was singing, dancing and some laughter. We also got glass of wine each and a bottle of water. What is worth mentioning is the view! The performance is on the roof of the building with the view on Acropolis ♡♡♡

A flowing show, cheerful and tragic at the same time in an elegant and sparkling connection with the cultural colossus from which it draws. Extremely trained, versatile, histrionic actors. Then to recite in the shadow of the acropolis almost a sublime act and the intangible task of making eternal stories and facts and theater. Thank you
