In general this was a fantastic traditional performance that we experienced - quality live music, costumes, dance, singing - the whole package! Make sure you check the weather before attending, as you don't want to be spoiled by rain. There wasn't that much of a big crowd unfortunately (they deserve more!) and fortunately, as it meant we could easily grab... More

My daughter and I attended a performance of Greek dances in 2012. I highly recommended it to my friend. We saw the performance on 3 June 2015. This group is subsidized by the Ministry of Culture and National Tourism Organization of the Municipality of Athens. They are highly skilled dancers, musicians and singers performing in authentic costume of the various... More

I visited the "Dora Stratou" Theater in Philopappou Hill in Athens last week and I have really enjoyed the performance. In 40 minutes all the music and dance culture of modern Greece passed in front of my eyes. The dances and costumes were wonderful. I highly recommend the show for everyone that would like to learn and at the same... More

Well worth a visit, we have been three times now. The programme is always varied and entertaining. Presenting local dances from all the regions of Greece in an open air amphitheatre that just reeks atmosphere. It starts quite late in the evening so you have time for dinner first.

This was a wonderful display of dancers in real authentic costumes from different areas and regions in Greece. The great thing about this show is that it is affordable, (15 euros a person ). My husband and I were going to go to a restaurant that advertised a Greek evening of food and dance, but instead we went to a... More

Today I took my kids to see this Folklore Show (Which I've seen twice before), but for some reason the show was completely different from what I've seen before and not the show that I wanted my kids to see. Turns out that instead of the "Usual" show, they had some sort of award presentation to 4 different traditional dance... More

This is one of Athens' long-standing offerings of excellent folklore music and dancing - with awesome costumes on the dozens of dancers. The troupe has been around since the 1950s and remains of the nicest things you can do while visiting Greece.

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.
