What I can see

The open-air theatre of about 900 seats is a lively museum of Greek dances. During summer months, daily performances with dances from all over Greece and places where Hellenism flourished are performed. The theatre’s permanent setting was done by Spyros Vassiliou.

What I can't see

The name comes from the founder of “Dora Stratou Greek Dances” association, who aimed to rescue the Greek dance tradition. Dora Stratou was awarded in 1974 for her work by the Academy of Athens.
