Traditional Greek Dance at Dora Stratou Theatre

  • 1.5 hours

Enjoy a traditional Greek dance show in the famous Dora Stratou open-air theatre located on Philopappou Hill. Let the rhythms take you away!

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.

Traditional Greek Dance Show

As night falls over Athens, you'll enjoy a passionate dance performance at the Dora Stratou Theatre. In the perfect traditional setting of the Philopappou Hill, you'll watch the folklore show with the background of a beautiful sunset.

The dance show, which lasts approximately 90 minutes, tells Greek folklore tales through traditional dancing. The musical representation means that anyone, regardless of their native language, can understand and enjoy the magic of the show!

A cast of 75 will perform the most traditional music and dance pieces of the country in typical Greek dress: a true cultural immersion that you'll never forget!
