An open-air theater constructed by the ancient Greeks; usually built on a hillside, with no outside facade. The orchestra, 1, on which the actors and chorus performed, was a full circle; behind it was the skene, a temporary or permanent building for the actors’ use. In the classic theater, the seating area (around and facing the orchestra) usually occupied approx. three-fifths of a circle. Also see Roman theater.
