This tour offers you the chance to enjoy some of the greatest actors in the world perform in ancient Greek dramas or comedies, or famous singers in concerts!
The theatre is marveled for its exceptional acoustics, which permit almost perfect intelligibility of unamplified spoken word from the stage to all 15,000 spectators, regardless of their seating. Tour guides have their groups scattered in the stands and show them how they can easily hear the sound of a match struck at center-stage. The rows of limestone seats filter out low-frequency sounds, such as the murmur of the crowd, and amplify high-frequency sounds from the stage.
Nowadays great performances take place there every summer, in July and August. Don’t miss the chance to have the experience of a lifetime!
