  The Theatre
by Sharon

That was it ? i asked my self when i saw it, i guess once again i had high expectations.
I don't know why but i had in mind much bigger theatre. Yes its a beautiful one no doubt but i just thought it whould be much bigger.
Its been years now that i was dreaming to see a preformence of Yanni in this Theatre, maybe I saw it on a video tape and that has gaven me this illusion ? Maybe.
However just a few facts, The theater of Herod Atticus built by the Romans in 161 AD and still used today for classical concerts, ballet, performances of high cultural value and Ofcourse.... Yanni.
Oh... and another thing about the Theatre. I think that people tend to somehow ignore it, this wall of the Theatre, its so amazing and i never seen that people do appreciate that. pity.
