Antalya has an incredible variety of musical options available. Many restaurants have traditional Turkish art music played on the oud or the baglama, while others have more contemporary Turkish/American pop cover performances. In the bars you can hear local singers and original bands.
On the classical front, Antalya has a symphony orchestra that performs almost every Friday evening from October through May, in the Ataturk Kultur Merkezi near the 5MMigros in Konyaalti. Conductors and soloists vary each week, but tickets are always just 10 lira (5 Euros). Antalya also hosts world famous classical artists every fall during its annual International Piano Festival, for which tickets are 25-30 TL.
There are also ballet and opera companies, both of which perform in the Hismet Iscan Kultur Merkezi, next to the Real Shopping mall. The opera and ballet tickets are also only 10 TL.. Antalya also has a jazz festival.
In the summer, when the symphony and opera are on hiatus, you can see opera performed in one of the best preserved ancient theaters in the world, Aspendos.
