Join Dream Vacations and Learning Journeys for an unforgettable theater immersion journey to Greece, where great playwrights such as Sophocles, Euripides and Aristophanes built the foundation upon which all modern theatre is based.
Greek theatre began in the 6th century BCE in Athens with the performance of tragedy plays at religious festivals, which inspired Greek comedy plays. The two types of Greek drama would become popular, and performances spread throughout the Mediterranean, influencing Hellenistic and Roman theatre.
The architecture of the ancient Greek theatre has continued to inspire the design of theatres today. Enjoy visits and workshops with local theater communities and experience a performance at Ancient Epidaurus Theatre Festival.
