Panagis excites the public of the capital city

Go out there and thrill me.

Roger Moore

A few words about An. Tsocha and his theater.

The businessman An. Tsochas (1840-1904) opened a theater in Piraeus, where Kanari Square is today. This theater was designed by the great German architect Ernst Moritz Theodor Ziller (1837-1923). It opened its doors in June 1885 and many famous artists took to its stage. In February 1886, arsonists set the theater on fire, but An. Tsochas, undaunted, rebuilt and reopened it.
