There were no fireworks, no Canadian flags or beer and certainly no maple syrup or butter tarts. But the performance at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the ancient outdoor theatre on the southwest slope of the Acropolis, could not have been a better advertisement for the richness of Canadian culture.

“Happy Canada Day,” Diana Krall told more than 4,000 enthusiastic fans – a full house – on the hot July 1 evening as she began her concert. The setting was magical: the remnants of ancient walls and arches forming a backdrop to the stage, with gently changing lighting turning the stones red, then blue and ochre. The near vertical seating ensured that no one had a bad view, and gave the concert something close to the intimacy of a nightclub.
