Ticket Information

IMPORTANT  NOTIFICATION: 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.

Performances will start on June 1st, at Peiraios 260, once again active after a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic. This year, the ‘summer’ vibe of Peiraios 260 will be more palpable than ever, as our theatre halls will be converted into open-air spaces, with retractable roofs, thus ensuring that all mandatory health protocols are observed for everybody’s safety. Later in June, performances will also be held at our open-air theatres, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, and the Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus.

Ticket booking for all venues will begin online on Friday, May 14th, at 13:00, for performances scheduled to take place in June, July, and August. The maximum number of tickets that can be purchased per each transaction is four (4).
