This year’s Athens and Epidaurus Festival programme opens with a tribute concert dedicated to the late Greek composer and former politician Thanos Mikroutsikos at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.

An emotional musical journey through songs, choral parts, compositions for musicals and revues, all of which were beloved by audiences and went on to enjoy a life beyond the theatre stage.

Music originally written for theatre, for plays by Brecht, Lope de Vega, Euripides and Aristophanes, together with poems by Ritsos, Cavafy and Kavvadias will be set to music.
