Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
The remains of ancient theatres are spread across the territory of Greece, haunted by the shadows of Homer, of the myths that fill the epics and the tragedies, of the not-so-distant past of human sacrifice: a theatre built on a high acropolis, perhaps religious in character, an amphitheatre in a major city of the Achaean League, the theatre of ancient Psophis, scene of Euripides' Alcmeon in Psophis, the smallest theatre preserved, at a site renowned in Homeric times.
