Check the schedule of all shows in the town before booking you vacation and select one that is on the stage of the Roman Theather. Anything... Classical or Rock concert, Theatre performance... Really anything! It doesn't really matter because it's worth it just because of the view of the theatre and the tow in the night!

I came here with my wife to see the opera "Carmen" and it was truly memorable. We sat near the orchestra and experienced a world class performance. Of course the warm evening in such a historic setting contributed to the memorable experience!

Authentic atmosphere. The effect of Aida mation alive. The theater is quite reserved, there is great views of downtown. In the summer there are various performances. Can make great pictures even when closed.

Be like the old Romans. Opera performances and concerts will leave you breathless. Plovdiv warm nights will make you feel the romanticism and love.

Plovdiv Opera were performing a concert version of Jesus Christ Superstar. Full orchestra. They do a summer season of opera, dance and musical events in the ancient theatre. Plus rock pop and concerts are regularly promoted. It's a haul up the hill. But worth it. You can go in the day time to just look. But it's even better to... More

When you walk down the steps of the theatre , you can't help but being transported 2000 years back in history. We had a drink at the cafe at the entrance first, it helps to set the scene :-) We Loved this !
