Theater of Lycabettus to reopen by Aug 30, official says

The Theater of Lycabettus, located on a hill that overlooks the capital, is slated to reopen this summer after undergoing upgrades, Attica Regional Governor Giorgos Patoulis has told Athens-Macedonian News Agency (AMNA). 

The historic theater has previously hosted both Greek and international music performances and will be upgraded according to a predetermined schedule after being closed for 15 years. 

Patoulis shared that an agreement has been reached between the region, the Ministry of Culture, and the Municipality of Athens, which is responsible for executing the works. The project has a budget of 3.9 million euros, and funds will be provided by the Region of Attica.

Patoulis expressed his determination to ensure that the theater is ready for use by August 30, at the latest, in time for a large festival scheduled for September. 

The project will include upgrading the hill and its facilities, replacing the seats, supporting the structure, and installing new canteen, lighting, fire, and communications systems. [AMNA]
