One of Rossini’s most delightful comic operas, Cinderella is, of course, based on the famous tale by Charles Perrault, but this time with a few major differences that relate to the period in which the piece was written.For example, it was inconceivable at the time for the leading lady to display her legs on stage, so there is no little glass slipper in the opera. Instead, the prince found his beloved thanks to a bracelet.

The establishment of Athens as a city dates back to mythological times. Despite the length of the city's history, it is still evident throughout Athens in the form of many Ancient, Roman, Byzantine and Modern monuments. Today's capital is a result of integration of ancient and medieval history into the contemporary era.

Athens is known for its cultural events. The city that gave birth to theater offers today a large variety of performances, ranging from text-based drama to physical theater, site specific performances and productions of international caliber. Cultured evenings featuring performing arts, cinema, ancient Greek tragedies and comedies can be enjoyed in open air venues, under the stars of the Athenian sky during the warm months. A unique experience is a performance or a concert held at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus at the foot of the illuminated Acropolis.
Summer in Athens is no doubt one of the most exciting times of the year. The mood of the summer vacation dominates every day and every night. The outdoor restaurants, bars, cafes and clubs that line the Mediterranean are tropical paradises built directly on the seacoast. Top DJs at these venues spin the hottest beats and top chefs mix the healthiest ingredients. The town is abuzz.
