Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus

Source; tornosnews.gr

Originally built as a place of worship for the followers of Dionysus, this 4th century BC theatre was discovered as late as 1971 and is located at the Ancient Epidaurus port. Visitors have to pass by a beautiful, fragrant orange grove in order to enter the venue. The Little Theatre currently features performances by up-and-coming Greek and international artists with a more alternative take on ancient drama.

English surtitles in all performances.

Starting hours: 21:30
