As in last year, seats at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, and the Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus, both in the Lower and the Upper Tier, will be numbered. Tickets can be purchased exclusively as individual seats or a pair of seats. The maximum allowed number of tickets per purchase is 4 (four). All tickets are personal and non-transferable and will be verified upon entrance in a contactless manner, by use of scanner.
Entrance and exit gates for audiences and their passage through the venues have also underwent adjustments wherever possible as a way of avoiding overcrowding outside the venues. Areas have been cordoned off in order to maintain a 1,5-metre distance between audience members upon entering and exiting the venues. Again as a way of avoiding overcrowding, audiences are recommended to arrive at the venue 60’ before the start of performances at Peiraios 260, the National Bank of Greece Cultural Foundation, the To Steki tou Ilia, and the Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus and 90’ before the start of the performances at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus. As was the case last year, there will be no intervals and audiences will gradually exit the performance venue, following the ushers’ instructions. Audiences must keep their mask on throughout their stay in the venue, from the moment they enter to the moment they exit the venue. It is worth mentioning that once again this year the Festival has hired extra ushers and guards, ensuring that all required measures and regulations are observed and facilitating this entire process for audiences and artists.
Extra toilets have been placed in special positions outside the venues, as a way of avoiding overcrowding around restrooms. This summer, canteens at venues will once again be active (starting on June 15), implementing all necessary disinfection, cordoning and physical distancing instructions. Special measures have also been implemented in dressing rooms and surrounding spaces, ensuring necessary health and hygiene conditions for artists participating in performances.
IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION FOR THE PERFORMANCES AT PEIRAIOS 260 ON SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER
In order for the public to enter performances that take place indoors, it is required to present a valid vaccination certificate or disease certificate in accordance with the provisions of the Greek Government regulations. The entrance is done with the use of a mask and by observing the distances both during the attendance and during the performances and according to the instructions of EODY. Refusal to show a relevant vaccination certificate or lack thereof makes it impossible for the ticket holder to enter without claiming a refund of the price paid for its purchase.
