Fire of Anatolia from Alanya offers a theatre and a show to you at the same time. The theatre is all about historical events. It shows us the past in a very unique way, the show is a dance performance with colourful costumes and vivid requisites. Performances take place in a big amphitheatre, which is over 2,000 years old (!). It is located in the ancient city of Aspendos.
There are two shows on the programme, and you can reserve the one that suits you best. The first is a dance kaleidoscope show focusing on the culture of the historic nations of Turkey and neighbouring countries. The show is called ‘Fire of Anatolia’ and the theatre itself is named after it. The second show tells the story of the events during the fall of Troy. It is based on Homer’s ‘Iliad’. Both programmes are indescribably colourful and dramatic. Please let us know at the time of booking which programme you would like to see (days may vary, depending upon which show you have chosen. We recommend that you reserve tickets for the shows in advance). Both transfers (to and from the hotel), show ticket and dinner are included in the price of the tour.
The Fire of Anatolia Dance troupe will set your heart on fire with the magnificent performance art that they have so made their own. With 250 regular performers, the sheer size of the cast should be enough to tell you how grandiose this show is. Also to see them perform in their birth town of Antalya will give you a sense of emotional pride. A performance that takes place in the ancient amphitheatre of Aspendos itself. For one evening you can take your seat in the amphitheatre and lose all sense of time and century, as you immerse yourself in the striking display of costumes and music, together with the dances of Turkey, both haunting and inspiring.
