14 Jun Penthésilées, HELLENIC FESTIVAL – ATHENS

What is the Athens Festival?

It is a celebration which has lasted 56 summers, and which has hosted some of the most iconic artists in theatre, music and dance, ranging from Mitropoulos and Callas to Rostropovich, Pavarotti, Leonidas Kavakos and Dimitris Sgouros; from Balanchine to Pina Bausch, from Nureyev to Martha Graham and Alicia Alonso. It is an initiative with a complicated past, sometimes clouded by certain events, notably the economic situation in Greece, but which has found a new vitality over the last two years.
