Ancient Theatre

    We would like to welcome you to the beautiful ancient theatre of Pythagorion, where 2500 years ago Pythagoras has laced the laws of Music and Physics. This year again we will have the chance to connect contradictions and contrasts. You will hear classical Music and Jazz, Opera, Folklore, and music of the world. Experience famous established musicians and young talents, at the beginning of a promising profession, from all over the world. Here in Samos, within sight of the formal edge of Orient and Occident, we would like to overcome borders and build bridges over national and musical borders, bringing together the established and the new. Music connects people across cultural, religious, and linguistic borders like no other. Join us on an exciting musical journey around the world in seven days.
