Travel guide to Sabratha
Sabratha - ancient Roman theatre
Sabratha - ancient Roman theatre
This magnificently surviving ancient Roman city offers the most complete theatre of the antiquities in the world. There are arenas like the Colosseum in Rome or similar ones in Arles or Nimes in southern France or Pula in Croatia, but those are totally different structures, erected for a completely other purpose. The arenas were built for the bloody sport of wrestling between humans and hungry wild animals or between gladiators. The theatres were built for actual art; music and play. The Sabratha theatre is remarkable, because the city of Sabratha with no city arch was much less important than the neighbouring ones. The theatre with the 95 meters auditorium was the largest one in Africa! What is the most mind-boggling is the classical behind the stage fa├žade with its three tier alcoves combining 108 columns which are over 20 meters tall. This makes this theatre, the theatre of theatres! [edit text]  [editors]
