We were at the concert... Its so amazing, so lovely. The music and dancers, and the boys who work in the theatre. My daughter became cold, so one of them managed to find a sweater for her. I did not ask for his name, sorry, but were so pleasantly impressed...
Thank you for everything. Best regards from Vilnius, Lithuania :)

This event was found for us on this site as something to go and see in Rhodes as an Anniversary present. We'd had a lovely day visiting Symi and were looking forward to seeing the performance given the previous write-ups here.

The setting is great - a lovely open-air theatre and the complimentary welcome glass of ouzo/retsina/water plus a nibble of cheese or Greek sweet biscuit was very nice.

The show starts with an extended duo by a keyboard player and a very talented bazouki player with Hendrix-like tendencies.... If there is any small criticism, then this part was perhaps too long and the tunes were played without context (no commentary), but nonetheless all was extremely well played.

But when the dancers came on, too, then the audience was treated to a wonderful display of traditional Greek dancing and with proper context/background with announcements in Greek, English and Russian. Each dance told a story, which was well done - a nice mixture of the dance as comedy, storytelling and, of course, courtship.

The costumes were lovely and the dancers clearly enjoyed what they did from their facial expressions and the energy they out into the performance. The musicians increased in number for this and they were all truly a talented bunch playing a range of instruments, with some beautiful singing from a member of the team.

Audience was thinner than the performance deserved, but the advantage is that you can walk up and buy a ticket. I recommend that you do just that, for this is a treat NOT to be missed.

Thanks to Chorospito - a truly talented group of people who deserve wide exposure.

Little did i know that when i visited Rhodes, i would have the chance to see this marvelous show. Not only their performance was truly amazing, but also their hospitality, offering home made Greek finger food and beverages for free.Not to mention the eye capturing view of the beautiful night sky, a great benefit of the open air theater! Also i want to highlight the beautiful exhibition of traditional costumes and instruments that takes place inside the theater! To conclude, it is an overall MUST WATCH performance for every tourist and local too!! Congratulations to Chorospito, keep up the good work!! Hoping to see you again!!

One of the highlights of our visit to Greece. Very good musicians as well as dancers! Very reasonably priced for what you get. I think they should advertise more, because the theatre was were not as full as I thought it should be - a lot of tourists just wandering in the streets. I am sure in the future they are going to attract big crowds. I am very glad we were there!
