Athens & Epidaurus Festival Programme to Depend on COVID-19 Developments

March 30, 2020

ATHENS – Katerina Evangelatos, Artistic Director of the Athens & Epidaurus Festival, on Monday outlined the 2020 programme of cultural events in a video message on the festival’s official website.

She said that due to the coronavirus pandemic, there is hope that the scheduled programme – which took seven months of meticulous preparation – will be realised in its entirety, but added that changes in the dates of shows, concerts and events might still be necessary, depending on the pandemic’s development.

The planning of this year’s event, prior to the coronavirus outbreak, features nearly 1,400 artists from more than 30 countries, in some 70 events and 40 premieres and new productions.
