Theatre at Halicarnassus

The Theatre at Halicarnassus was built during the reign of the Carian Satrap Mausolos in the 4th century BC in the Greco-Roman style. It has been thought that the Theatre at Halicarnassus and the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus in the Argolis region of Greece has similar styles. It is known that it was expanded to its current form during the Roman period, around 2nd AD. It was renovated in the 1970s and 1990s and today hosts cultural events such as the Bodrum International Ballet Festival, and concerts. It has a 10,000-seat capacity.
