Sixty-six archaeological sites and museums in 51 regions across Greece will give stage for over 70 artistic performances from mid-July to mid-September, the Culture Ministry announced on Wednesday.
Between July 15 and September 15, theater, music, dance and musical theater productions will over 1,000 artists and support staff will be performed in the areas of ancient Greek temples, castles, monuments, on sacred islands, in ancient cities, on bridges as well as in museums.
According to the Culture Minister, Attica has been excluded as a region due to the plethora of activities already in place.
“We wanted to boost regional activities,” Minister Lina Mendoni said during the presentation of the program “All of Greece, a Single Culture.”
The program’s key idea is to link cultural heritage and monuments to the modern arts.
