Roman theatre of Tarraco Despite much of it having been destroyed during the 20th century, the remains of three fundamental parts of the structure are still visible; the "cavea" (seating), the "orchestra" and the "scaena". The ruins can be seen from the purpose-built lookout point.
Randy Jones (singer) He attended William G. Enloe GT/IB Center for the Humanities, Sciences, and the Arts in Raleigh, North Carolina and graduated in 1970. While there, he was a founder of Enloe's Drama Club, which was then called Amicus Scaena, Latin for "friend of scene" or "friend of theatre." He then studied at North Carolina School of the Arts before moving to New York.
Portico of Pompey The entrance to the theatre complex was tightly controlled at either side of the Curia of Pompey. This was to guide the visitor's sight directly along the inner garden area to the main doorway (regia) to the stage of the theatre and up to the temple of Venus Victrix. This sightline was permanently disprupted in 32 BC when Augustus had a stone scaena built.
Theatre of Marcellus Like other Roman theatres in suitable locations, it had openings through which the natural setting could be seen, in this case the Tiber Island to the southwest. The permanent setting, the "scaena", also rose to the top of the "cavea" as in other Roman theatres.
Domus Severiana On the side facing the via Appia, Septimius Severus commissioned an impressive three-level facade akin to the scaena in a theatre, with fountains and colonnades. This became known as the Septizodium. It is said that the emperor monumentalised this side of the building to impress his fellow Africans, who would arrive in Rome along the via Appia. The Septizodium's remains were demolished in the 16th century and it is only known from Renaissance drawings.
Theatre of ancient Rome During the time of these temporary structures, theatrical performances featured a very minimalist atmosphere. This included space for spectators to stand or sit to watch the play, known as a "cavea", and a stage, or "scaena". The setting for each play was depicted using an elaborate backdrop ("scaenae frons"), and the actors performed on the stage, in the playing space in front of the "scaenae frons", called the "proscaenium". These structures were erected in several different places, including temples, arenas, and at times, plays were held in Rome’s central square (the "forum").
Odeon of Athens Plutarch writes that the original building had many seats and many pillars. Modern excavation work has revealed its foundations (62.40 × 68.60 m) and it is now known that the roof was supported by 90 internal pillars, in nine rows of ten. From a few other passages, and from the scanty remains of such edifices, we may conclude further that it had an orchestra for the chorus and a stage for the musicians (of less depth than the stage of the theatre), behind which were rooms, which were probably used for keeping the dresses and vessels, and ornaments required for religious processions. It required no shifting scenery but its stage's back-wall seems to have been permanently decorated with paintings. For example, Vitruvius writes that, in the small theatre at Tralleis (which was doubtless an Odeum), Apaturius of Alabanda painted the scaena with a composition so fantastic that he was compelled to remove it, and to correct it according to the truth of natural objects.
