Odeon of Herodes Atticus, Athens Overview

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian merchant Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla.

The open air theater has been continuously used as a venue for music concerts. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and turned into a ruin by the Heruli in 267 AD. The stand for audience and the stage were restored using pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then Athens Festival is hosted every year at the venue, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek, as well as, International performances.
