Artist's Description

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus, a stone theatre structure located on the south slope of the Acropolis of Athens, Greece. Built in 161 AD by Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped amphitheater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof, and was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000.

The audience stands and the ‘orchestra’ (stage) were restored using pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been one of the main venues of the Athens Festival, which runs from June through September each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.

Three bracketed RAWs Tonemapped in Photomatix Pro 4.2.1.
