Dora Stratou Theatre
Located on Philopappou Hill, also called Muse Hill, the iconic Dora Stratou Theatre is an open-air auditorium which recrates the legendary amphitheatres where the Ancient Greeks would watch mythical theatre productions. The venue is named after Dorothea Stratou, an Athenian intellectual who dedicated much of her life to promoting and spreading traditional Greek folk music and dance. Her books about Greek folklore contributed a huge amount to these popular dances, whose traditions have remained strong over time.
