The art of theatre has been  invented by the ancient Greeks in the area of Athens in the fifth century A.D.  Greeks still love theatre and they frequent the innumerous theatrical scenes created mostly in big cities such as Athens and Thesaloniki. But every summer in all the places of Greece, in small villages, in all the islands you will certainly meet a festival with many theatrical performances given in plein air under the stars.
