What people are saying:

After the end of Roman rule, the opera house was abandoned. The people gathered stones from the opera house, built houses and monasteries, and suffered serious damage. Today, the ancient Roman opera house only has stairs and some stone pillars. The marble stone pillars are the only remaining two complete stone pillars of the original Roman Opera House, and the terrace seats have been reduced from 10,000 to 2,000 at first. In the 19th century, the government carried out restoration work and displayed the excavated stone pillars and piers together. What was found at the time were all remaining fragments, but now it looks like it was restored. At that time, the building of the opera house was a rectangle with walls on three sides, more than 70 pillars, and a ceiling on it, which was inclined downward to ensure sound pickup.

    It's nice to see the space still used for current shows.

    We saw it thorough the bars (it was closed) on our way to the amphitheater. The audience seating is well preserved but not much is left of the original stage area (only two columns remain)
