“Grotesque architecture”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Beautiful acoustics inside, but nothing special or worth seeing. In line with every 60s concert hall in US cities. Modern, out of scale and place, clashes with the wonderful building that is the US embassy next to it. Too bad the Greeks missed the opportunity to create a modern era monument, one wonders how they feel if they look at Frank Geary's work in LA and Bilbao.

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

It's amazing as a building and the concerts are wonderful!It's easy to be reached because of the metro station, which is almost outside the athens Consert Hall! If you visit Athens don't miss it, read on line the program and find out which one of the conserts you like and go! You will have a great time especially if you choose a greek artist, so what you will get in contact with greek music in a more formal way!

“a theme for an imaginary western”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Well equipped, dull, double concert - opera auditorium next to the American Embassy. A most expensive and time consuming operation, that was the making of it, with the deepest underground 'well' for the garage. The controversial 'visionary' Lambrakis completed it and possibly misspent the funds in order to create a
Bayreuth of sorts. Fine ensembles (symphonic) were traditionally invited. The operatic stuff suffered in scenic and support terms and currently the financial strictures have reduced the glamour. Complete lack of ambience in terms of intimacy. Value for money not bad when an excellent event is staged.
