Theatre of Pompey and Marcellus

By Nick Weed & Natalie Zawadzki

A number of theatres were built in the course of Rome’s history, each reflecting ideologies, technology and architecture of their times. For Rome, a number of architectural concepts were borrowed from the Greeks and modified for Romans, creating a new architectural language. Noticeable differences with Roman architecture for the theatres include making use of concrete in the construction and having the analemmata were always parallel with the stage. Theatres in Rome include the Theatre of Pompey, which was built with concrete and was located on the Campus Martius, and the Theatre of Marcellus, which was started by Julius Caesar to rival the Theatre of Pompey.
