THE 26th ASPENDOS INTERNATIONAL OPERA AND BALLET FESTIVAL WILL TAKE PLACE in September this year ... from 1st to 18th September. It is a unique occasion to enjoy the world's best classic repertoire in likewise best-preserved ancient amphitheatre.

The festival was established on a national level in 1994 and acquired international status in 1998. In 2003, the British Independent Newspaper gave it the 5th position among the world's ten most respectable festivals of that kind. One of the reasons for its popularity is the unique location. Aspendos amphitheatre was constructed back in the 2nd century A.

D. when the city was under the rule of the Roman Empire. Its creator—a famous Roman architect Zeno—used only top quality calcareous stone. During the reign of Seljuks, the theatre was turned into a palace, and reinforced with bricks. After all, Turkey deserves to be given the proper credit for the excellent conservation of the theatre that remains functional till modern days.

Aspendos is located in Antalya Province, four kilometres north off Serik, and only 38 kilometres from Antalya itself. Here is the link to the official website of the Festival, its program and list of ticket offices. It is also posible to buy tickets online.
