Roman Theatre, Carthage: 5 reviews and 10 photos

Located near the remains of some Roman Villas, this Roman Theatre was built in the 2nd century AD and could accomodate 5,000 spectators. The stage, slightly raised, is backed by a scenae frons (stage wall). After much earlier alteration and destruction the theater has now been almost completely restored, and is used for open-air performances in July and August and for the Film Festival.
