Comments on: Panorama of the Week: Jerash Roman Theater, Jordan http://uncorneredmarket.com/jerash-roman-theatre-panorama/ travel wide, live deep Tue, 22 Apr 2014 14:31:12 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8.3 By: Audrey Scotthttp://uncorneredmarket.com/jerash-roman-theatre-panorama/#comment-248326 Fri, 02 Sep 2011 15:27:51 +0000 http://www.uncorneredmarket.com/?p=9091#comment-248326 @Henry: For a small country, Jordan is full of Roman ruins like this. Very impressive.

@Sutapa: It definitely is a real theatre – you can still see the areas where actors and speakers used to perform 2000 years ago and can imagine the cheering crowds. Pretty neat.

@Phyllis: We were talking with someone else about acoustics the other day and how the old European cathedrals often were built with amazing acoustics while today we use technology and different materials to get the same (or perhaps inferior) effect. And the Romans knew what they were doing even before the great cathedral builders. Very impressive.

Hope the acoustics at the new theatre are good!

@Rob: Thanks! We tried to capture it with a bit of activity, but not too much. Glad it conveyed the feeling of being there.

Our local university just built a dynamite theater, but I bet it requires electcity and lots of electronic equipment to do the same thing!
