I saw this from the acropolis hill and it really took me by surprise! All of the amazing sites dotted around the hill are stunning. This huge stage and seating area looks like it's used for screenings today? Awesome day

Close your eyes and imagine you are in Ancient Greece watching a tragedy on stage! Saw the opera Madame Butterfly- my only complaint is the seating is not comfortable, but it was worth it for the magical experience.

Fortunately we could buy tickets online for the Opera Madama Butterfly. And were we lucky! An amazing evening. If you have the opportunity to see an opera or other event, GO FOR IT!
