What people are saying:

Archaeologists in Lyon have studied several times and reconstructed the stage structure that could enhance the sound effect at that time. Its scaled model is displayed in the museum.

Additional Information

Introduction

As early as 43 BC, the ancient Romans built a luxurious theater in Lyon. In the second century AD, tens of thousands of seats were added to the theater space, showing the grand scene of the theater performance at that time. Later, archaeologists in Lyon studied several times and reconstructed the stage structure that could enhance the acoustic effect. The Ancient Theatre of Fourvière is a large and a small two-and-a-half amphitheatre. It is still well preserved. It is not only an unearthed cultural relic for tourists, but also performs performances such as concerts and operas from time to time.
