The Theatre in Sparta


The Theatre

The theatre was rebuilt during 1st century B.C. The huge wooden public structure is supported with two large walls. It is assumed that it had 16,000 guests for each performance. 

The walls were composed of limestone while the center and the stage were white marble. But much of the marble that formed the seats was removed to use it for the building of Mistras. 

Today, only the orchestra, the stage and few other excavations have been of it excavated and it is no longer in good condition.
