Don't miss this in Orange!
The Roman Theatre of Orange, built under the reign of Augustus in the first century AD by veterans of Julius Caesar’s second legion, is one of the best-preserved Roman theatres in the world. Its impressive exterior wall with the original façade (103 m long and 37 m high) still stands today.
The theatre has hosted the Roman Festival every summer since 1869, together with the Chorégies d’Orange and New Chorégies opera festivals since 1902 and 1971 respectively.
Every winter since 1891, a festival has been held for lovers of ancient artwork.
Since 2002, the town of Orange, the owner of the monument, has entrusted the company Culturespaces with the management and promotion of the theatre.
