An amazing night featuring Ancient Arias in Ephesus Odeon was organized on 18th of September 2020.
Concert’s host was the state opera house of Izmir and six talented artists from Izmir opera house gave unforgettable performances.
I and my wife Valeriya had the opportunity to attend this concert. Especially during these times of hardships, this concert gave people hope and inspiration.
I hope you will have chance to attend night tours and concerts in Ephesus Ancient City during your visit in Turkey. Contact me to learn more about night tours in Ephesus and to hire a professional licensed tour guide to Ephesus Ancient City. See you soon, Hasan Gülday.
