Completely recommended. The setting is beautiful, the dancers and musicians are very professional, the costumes are beautiful. In 90 minutes you learn so much. It is really a very high quality.

Dora Stratou is a historical theatre located at a perfect place. Near Acropolis, among trees, a person can enjoy a show of top Greek dancers, in a concept realistic. Price is fine, nobody should miss it.
