The ancient theatre of Delos has been silent for over 2000 years.   This marvelous 3rd century BC theatre was once the place for major celebrations.  There were the games of independent Delos, feast,  and artists performing from all corners of the Hellenistic world.

You will have two nights only to experience this event.  Don’t miss it if you can.

On Fri. Sept. 2 and Sat. Sept. 3 at 6pm, the theatre will host a play that aims to raise awareness about the tragedy of refugees in the waters of the Aegean.

The play, organized by the Cyclades Antiquities Ephorate and the Municipality of Mykonos, is entitled “Ekavi, a refugee on Delos” . The Municipal and Regional Theater of Agrinio will stage the play under the auspices of the President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos, with Despina Bebedelli starring and Nikos Karageorgou directing.

As the ancient theatre can not host a large audience, the play will be performed in front of a small amount of people that must strictly follow the instructions of the Ephorate’s staff. (For reservations call 210 3250148.)
