The Ancient Theatre Archive: A Virtual Reality Tour of Greek and Roman Theatre Architecture offers photos, panoramas, detailed descriptions, and, in several instances, virtual tours of classical theatre sites across Europe. (Tours require Quicktime to view.) The Met offers a basic overview of the differences between Greek and Roman theatrical architecture. For more theatres and related theatrical imagery, visit John Porter's one-stop catalog of online visual resources, Skenotheke.

This is a really deep, rich site and I actually mentioned it in passing.

Awesome .. thank you so much. This is an excellent resource. I will be going to Hierapolis and Ephesus in May - this is a most excellent preview to whet my appetite, yay.

Thanks for this! It appears to be a work in progress since there are many on the map which are not listed on the left bar - or am I missing something.

Not only have I been to the theatre in Arles, I've sat in it and watched a play - they still stage productions there!

I use this site whenever I teach Antigone in my drama class. It's a lovely resource.
