Ancient Theater – OHRID

The Ancient theater of Ohrid of the Hellenistic period is located in Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia. It was built in 200 BC and is the only Hellenistic-type. The open theater has a perfect location: the two hills that surround it keep it protected from winds that could interfere with acoustics during performances.
Since the late 1980 s, the theater is again a site of public performances, such as plays, concerts, operas, ballet performances. Recently, high-profile cultural performances such as those by the Bolshoi and José Carreras take place each summer as part of the Ohrid Summer Festival.
