Theatre of Marcellus - Rome


The Theatre of Marcellus is an open-air theatre built by Emperor Augustus in 13 BC and was the biggest of its kind in Ancient Rome. It was named after Marcus Marcellus, Emperor Augustus' nephew, who died five years before its completion. To rival the theatre of his greatest enemy, Pompey, Caesar had cleared the land for it but was killed not long into the project. Once finished the theatre could accommodate over 14, 000 spectators. Today, the Theatre of Marcellus is used as a setting for an annual festival of Classicalal concerts, held doing the months of July and August.
