Ancient Greek Theater Revived at Three Athens Sites

Starting on Friday, July 5, visitors to Athens will have the chance to experience ancient Greek theater at the Acropolis Museum, the Byzantine and Christian Museum, and the Ancient Agora during a cultural program organized by the Athens – Attica & Argosaronic Hotel Association in cooperation with Athens International Airport.

In its third year running, the program dubbed “The Stones Speak” (Oi Petres Miloun), features a series of theater performances aiming to showcase Greek cultural heritage and integrate Greek culture into tourism.

The first performance takes place on July 5 at the Byzantine and Christian Museum, followed in September at the Ancient Agora, and in October at the Acropolis Museum.

Admission to all performances is free of charge.
