How greek theaters started by honoring their gods. Such an amazing form of architecture.

It is interesting and wonderful that many people continue to carry the same principals and techniques as the Greeks. There music and acting gave birth to so many forms of genres over the centuries but didn't really start showing up till much later in human history.

The ancient theatres of western Greece

The ancient theatres of western Greece | Classical Geek |

During antiquity, at least half a dozen theaters in the Aitoloakarnania district in western Greece used to attract crowds thirsting for drama performances. Today most of them, along with surrounding archaeological sites, lie largely unattended; some have not even been excavated at all.
