Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / Vaucluse / Orange / Roman Theatre of Orange
Roman Theatre of Orange was built early in the first century CE, and today hosts the Chorégies d'Orange, a summer opera festival. This is one of the best preserved Roman theaters in the Julian colony of Arausio, which was established by the soldiers of the second legion. UNESCO declared this a World Heritage Site in 1980. It is famous for varied dramatic forms, such as mime, pantomime, poetry readings, and attelana, a kind of farce similar to the commedia dell' arte. Roman audiences, who were allowed to attend free of charge, were fascinated by the spectacular and elaborate sets. The theater was originally used as a distraction for the colonies, to discourage them from political action.

It's worth visiting but Euro 32 for a family (2 adults, 2 children below 11) is way too much. we stayed for about 45 minutes.

Beautiful theathre, wonderful acoustic. It gave a special feeling to listen to a concert here. Very very impressive. I loved it.
Beautiful architecture and exquisitely well-preserved Roman features make this place unique in the world, as it is the only Roman amphitheatre that still has its stage wall intact. They are constantly renovating the wall, but it is still worth visiting if you are in the area!
