The Athens Epidaurus Festival will take place from June 1 to October, 10.

It will host more than 80 productions, emphasising works by Greek artists.

The programme encompasses works with a very distinctive artistic brand and a wide range of styles, including over 50 Greek productions and approximately 30 international productions. Overall, about 1,800 artists will be featured in this year’s programme.

Moreover, the Festival will present 10 new works in collaboration with cultural institutions from Germany, France, Belgium, Poland, USA and Canada.
