“Ballet at Aspendos”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

We experienced the ballet at this old Roman theatre. We were able to purchase tickets online in Australia before we left so were very much looking forward to it. The atmosphere was excellent, the ballet and orchestra were good. We would recommend this just for the experience as much as anything else. It is good to visit ruins of amphitheatres in ancient cities but also good to experience a show. Well-organised.

“Wow!!”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

£33 for a light supper and a night under the stars watching a wonderful Opera in a 2000 year old ampitheatre...unforgettable.

We orgainised via our Thomas cook rep and the group we went with had some older guests and one who required use of a stick, but despite the steep and uneven seating, they were allocated good seats. Do not buy the foam squares for those selling them outside the theatre as small cusions are provided for most people; do bring bring your own cusion or towel for additional comfort and try to go to the toilet before entering the theatre as the portaloos get busy during the interval.

“Memorable night”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

The Aspendos Opera Festival proved a memorable night. An hour's drive from Antalya, it is a unique venue for a good performance. Go in time for the best seats, as the old amphi-theatre is challenging to walk at.

“A good place for local and foreing plays.”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

This place is a plus in Antalya, which has become a cultural spot in modern Turkey. When announcing one play, don't miss the chance to enjoy it. You will need local directions to get there, since is not that easy to get there or if you are not familiar with the city.
