The Great Theater of Epidaurus

This is our entry in Lost in Translation’s BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: STEPS AND STAIRS.

This photo was taken from the top row of the Great Theater of Epidaurus in Greece. This theatre, with seating for 13,000 (later expanded to 14,000), was built in 340 BC. The acoustics are so good that a person standing on the proscenium (stage) can be heard by everyone in the theater, just by speaking normally without shouting and without a microphone. As might be imagined, this is a popular activity for many tourists (and tour guides).

This panorama-in-camera was taken on September 25, 2016. Specs are:

Olympus Tough TG-4, ISO 100, f/8, 1/200 sec, 4.5 mm
