In 1980, following a proposal by Manos Hatzidakis and according to the designs by Dionysis Fotopoulos, a Small open-air Garden Theatre was built, right behind the large open-air garden theatre, at the piazza bassa (lit. “Low square”) of the Gate of Jesus. It was recently named after the great Greek composer. It is a prefabricated construction which causes no damage to the Venetian Walls (characterised as a listed monument). In the summer of 2011 the theatre underwent full refurbishment and its current entrance is located on Plastiras Street.
