Inspired by the God Dionysus the ancient Greeks loved festivals, music, and the spectacular; modern day Athens continues this tradition under the banner of the Athens Festival.

This music and drama extravaganza runs throughout the summer, bringing the very best in music, art and drama to Athenians and visitors from across the globe. Over its 50 year history the Athens Festival has attracted some leading names in music, dance and theater, such as Maria Callas, Luciano Pavarotti and Elton John. The 2011 festival featured Claudio Monteverdi’s The Coronation of Poppea, Sadler’s Wells London’s Sylvie Guillem, the London Sinfonietta and many more dance, theater and art productions.
