Magnificence in the shadow of ancient heritage: Theater of Miletus

Miletus Theatre, bearing the traces of ancient Greek and Roman civilizations, continues to fascinate visitors with its history of more than 2000 years.

This magnificent structure, built by Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius and 150 meters long, is considered one of the most beautiful examples of ancient theater architecture.

Historical Journey

The first construction of the Theater of Miletus dates back to the Hellenistic period, B.C. It dates back to the 4th century. The theater, which had a capacity of 5000 people at that time, was restored by Marcus Aurelius during the Roman Period and turned into a structure with a capacity of 15 thousand people. While the front rows of the theater were reserved for the statesmen and priests of that time, it is known that public meetings also took place here.

Acoustic Miracle

Acoustics have always played an important role in ancient theaters. Miletus Theater is also a very successful example in this regard. It has a special acoustic arrangement that ensures that the sound on stage reaches every corner of the theater equally. In this way, the audience can hear all the sounds on the stage clearly.
