Ancient theatre in Western Greece to be reopened




Carved into a hillside in Messolonghi, an ancient theatre is reopening after being partially restored to its former glory.

In a statement released by the Greek Ministry of Culture, the once crowded theatre will have its doors reopened, allowing guests to revisit the past and to consider the many productions that took place there.

In a million-dollar renovation project, the theatres stage, internal walls, gates, and staircases have all been mended, with the aim of keeping the authenticity of the structure.  

Although the renovation project is not expected to be completed until December, the reopening will be under the light of the full moon with a presentation showing the repairs and live entertainment.
