Tickets to Cultural Events

Hi Everyone,

I will be in Athens during September and would very much like to attend a classical music concert, Greek Music concert, play, etc. on two nights of our stay. I have seen some advertisements for some interesting events, but have not been able to locate a site to purchase tickets. Any suggestions? Is there a ticketmaster type of outlet or such.

I saw the Euripedes play advertised, but no information on tickets. I am assuming it is in Greek, but that isn't clear either.

Any suggestions for finding evening cultural events in Athens?

Many thanks.

I am going to the Dora Stratou Dance Theatre performance on a Sunday evening. This may not be what you have in mind, but it appears to be authentically Greek, and is rated highly as a Trip Advisor Thing To Do in Athens. The theater was very nice in their prompt email response to my questions. You don't have to buy tickets beforehand, just show up at the Theater ~15 minutes or so before the show. See their website at www.grdance.orgce.org. I was told that tickets are 15 Euros.

I found this because it is on this TripAdvisor site, as well as a listed cultural event in Fodor's Greece guide.

I tried all manner of Google searches for other "events" in Athens, and didn't come up with much, and/or that wasn't in Greek. Please let me know if you or someone else has something of interest to English-speaking tourists!

Dora Stratou performance was very good! Check the web site listed above as the shows are seasonal.

Hope this will help you.

Still don't have many photos labeled, and will hopefully write my TR this weekend!
