lovely setting for an evening show

It's a beautiful little theatre in amongst all the trees on the hill (though the path back wasn't lit and it was dark by then so that was a bit scary). Unfortunately for us it... read more

In an old theater, outside it is a 1:30 hour of great dance spectacle with traditionnal folklore of main part of thee country. Not too long with nice orchestra and singer. The costumes are very nice. Even kids like it. A must have if you stay in Athens few days. No need to book earlier as there're some room.

Attended the Bollywood festival on 20 June 2014. The venue and the shows were very nice and excellent value for money.

The Dora Stratou Theatre is the Alpha and Omega regarding to traditional Greek dance. Please note: if the performance is cancelled due to rain, take your tickets to the box office and ask them to validate them for another day so you can return to see the performance without paying again.

We visited Dora Stratou in June while visiting Athens and we very impressed with the show. I note a couple of other reviews mention an inappropriate skit. Well they must have changed the show because we saw nothing like that and would have no hesitation taking children along. The night we visited there were a few showers around and the... More

I have visited Athens 6 times but only managed to fit in a visit to the Dora Stratou Theatre this year. It was a very worthwhilst experience with traditional music and dancing from villages and islands all over Greece. The costumes and dancing was superb and the music sung and played with great passion. It was a nice experience to... More

I visited the Dora Stratou Greek Dances Theater on Thursday 18 July with my young children (all under 10 years old), my mother-in-law and husband. There were only approximately 100 persons in the 800+ theater (50 of whom were members of the Greek military who I believe were given free passes) and we were able to get seats in the... More

We were excited to take three other families along with us to what I expected to be a lovely night of Greek folk dancing and amazing hand made costumes. The entire experience was ruined by one VERY vulgar skit which completely distracted from the dance routine. It was embarrassing to watch and horrible for our children and young adults -... More

I have to agree with the other individual who rated the show as "terrible". In the almost 50 years that I have been living in Greece, I have always taken my guests to see a performance of the Dora Stratou Greek Dances, knowing how much it will be enjoyed. This time, one "dance" was enough to leave a very bad... More

It's a beautiful little theatre in amongst all the trees on the hill (though the path back wasn't lit and it was dark by then so that was a bit scary). Unfortunately for us it wasn't the usual show, but a number of dance groups visiting from the villages. What we saw was certainly very authentic, just not what we... More
