Canon DIGITAL IXUS 900Ti
This panorama shows the south theater of the ancient Greco-Roman city of Gerasa (Jerash).
Built during the reign of Emperor Domitian, between 90-92 AD, the South Theater seats more than 3000 spectators.
The remarkable acoustics allows a speaker at the center of the orchestra floor to be heard by the entire auditorium without raising his/her voice.
The brilliant design took all the factors in consideration, such as the sun's brightness and direction. For this reason, the theater was built in a way so to allow the least amount of sunlight to disturb the audience.
