about Roman Theatre of Benevento
The Roman Theatre of Benevento, known locally as Teatro Romano di Benevento, is a well-preserved semi-circular historic theatre built during the reign of the Ancient Roman Emperor, Hadrian.
Measuring 295 feet in diameter and constructed of rock, brick and cement, the Roman Theatre of Benevento was completed in approximately 126 AD and would have held up to 10,000 spectators.
Today, the lower part of the façade of the Roman Theatre of Benevento stands intact, with a series of twenty-five archways. Some of the stage scenery or “frons scenae” can still be discerned, notably parts of its doorways.
