Ancient Theatre of Sparta
Prefectural Administration of Lakonia
The ancient theatre of Sparta is located on the southwest side of the Acropolis, with a southerly orientation. It was rebuilt in the Roman period [1st century BC] and preserves the form it took during this period. It was imposing, thanks to its great dimensions. It had 48 rows of seats and 27 sections, with a total capacity of up to 16,000 audience members. The stage and the cavea were made of white marble. Running around the perimeter of the upper part of the cavea was a stoa. A stone theatre was built on this spot in 200 BC, replacing a wooden one constructed in the 5th century BC. This first theatre was used for public gatherings and celebrations.
