Housed in the Olympia Theater on Akadimias Street, the National Opera presents works from both the classical and contemporary repertory, including works by Greek composers. Among the many great singers who have performed on this stage is Maria Callas. The diva's first professional contract was with the Greek National Opera back in 1940, which inaugurated her successful international career.
