Seventy new productions will be staged at 66 archaeological sites across the country as part of “All of Greece, one Culture,” a two-month Greek Culture Ministry initiative starting July 15, which was unveiled to the media Wednesday. The 2.23-million-euro program, which is funded by the ministry, was inaugurated last year in a bid to soothe the pandemic-hit culture sector. Culture Minister Lina Mendoni was optimistic that increasing vaccinations will allow the program to proceed uninhibited despite a surge in Covid cases.
