Theater at Epidaurus - Greece. The theater, dating to the 4th century B.C. and arranged in 55 semi-circular rows, remains the great masterwork of Polykleitos the Younger. Audiences of up to 14,000 were able to hear actors and musicians--unamplified--from the back row of the architectural masterpiece.
