Herod Atticus Odeon ranked second in list of world's leading theatres

The Herod Atticus Odeon beneath the Acropolis is the second-best place in the world to watch live performances, according to a list appearing in a special supplement in Canada's "Globe and Mail" newspaper.

Dealing more specifically with the use of privileges from credit cards under the headline "Top venues for live theatre," the list presents the best venues in the world for live theatre, dance and music.

As regards the Herod Atticus, there is a reference to its history, while it is termed the best example of an authentic Greek amphitheatre and is described as "the perfect location where modern music meets with the ancient atmosphere." It is the ideal of all artists, the report says.

Topping the list is England's Minack Theatre, Porthcurno and it is followed by the Herod Atticus Odeon in Athens, the Sydney Opera House, Milan's La Scala, New York's Carnegie Hall, Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre and other famous venues around the world.
