Natural Amphitheatre

November 6, 2012 by  

Natural Amphitheatre, An amphitheatre (or amphitheater) is an open-air venue used for entertainment and performances. The term derives from the ancient Greek meaning “on both sides” or “around” meaning “place for viewing”.

Ancient Greek theatres were built to a semicircular plan, with tiered seating above a performance area. Ancient Roman amphitheatres were oval or circular in plan, with seating tiers that surrounded the central performance area, like a modern open-air stadium.

Modern usage for “amphitheater” can embrace theatre-style stages with the audience only on one side, theatres in the round, and stadiums.

Natural formations shaped like man-made theatres or amphitheatres are sometimes known as natural amphitheatres.
