What are you catching this summer at the Herodion? The Athens Epidaurus Festival's programme has been announced for this season and frankly, we can't decide what to book first. From cutting edge electronic acts, to rock priestesses and celebrated operas, there's an unforgettable cultural experience awaiting every local and visitor. If you're more into classics, plump for a night out with Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists. The brilliant 80-year-old pioneer of Baroque and early Classical music will take the stage of our ancient open-air theatre for a one-off performance of works by Bach and his predecessors, Schütz and Schein. Putting the class in classical.
