Ancient Greek theatre was a theatrical culture that flourished in ancient Greece from 700 BC.

The city-state of Athens, which evolved in prominence as a cultural, political, and religious centre during this time, was its epicentre, and it was here that the theatre was established as part of a festival honouring the God Dionysus known as the Dionysia.

Because most ancient Greek cities were situated on or near hills, seating was often carved into the hill’s slope, resulting in a natural viewing area known as the theatron. Banks of soil were heaped up in cities that lacked suitable hills.

The orchestra, located at the bottom of the hill, was a flattened, largely circular performance space with an average diameter of 78 feet.

Actors and chorus members frequently entered and exited the orchestra through lofty, arched portals known as parodoi or eisodoi.

The skené was a backdrop or scenic wall found behind the orchestra in some theatres.

Ancient Greek Theatre of Dodona

Dodona in Epirus in northwestern Greece was the oldest Hellenic oracle, possibly dating to the second millennium BCE according to Herodotus.

The earliest accounts in Homer describe Dodona as an oracle of Zeus.

Situated in a remote region away from the main Greek poleis, it was considered second only to the Oracle of Delphi in prestige.

The Theatre of Dodona is one of the largest theatres in Greece (18.000 seats) and was built during the 3rd century B.C. It is comprised, like all ancient theatres, of a koilon (spectators’ seats), a stage, an orchestra whilst there was also a Doric colonnade.

There may possibly also have been a wooden construction in front of the stage. Its walls extend 21 meters in height and are supported by strong towers.

Ancient Greek Theatre of Epidaurus

The Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus is a theatre in the Greek city of Epidaurus, located on the southeast end of the sanctuary dedicated to the ancient Greek God of medicine, Asclepius.

It is built on the west side of Cynortion Mountain, near modern Lygourio, and belongs to the Epidaurus Municipality.

Constructed in the late 4th century BC, it is considered to be the most perfect ancient Greek theatre with regard to acoustics and aesthetics.
