Actually, here in Greece we still use ancient buildings to host many
events (mostly theatrical plays and concerts). Buildings like
Epidaurus[1], the Panathinaic Stadium[2] and the Herodion Theater[3] are
still used until today. The are beautiful pictures with night-time
events. The building Martin mentioned is a museum (the Stoa of Attalos).
But there are many examples of Neoclassicism around the world.
