We were staying nearby so we saw went to see Vladimir Ashkenazi - Dmitry Ashkenazi perform with the Athens state orchestra at night. The acoustics were great in the amphitheater on a lovely warm summer night not too expensive

The ancient theater under the shade of the Partenon is a must for every visitor. During the summertime it hosts concerts and performances. You should not miss it.
