The theatre at Orange is well worth the visit to appreciate the scale of the Roman buildings. Even today the acoustics are very good its easy to heart a conversation on the stage when in the top rows. The audio guide (available in English) was the highlight with detailed information on the theatre but more interesting in its connection with society of the time. Easy to see ho w the empire was lost if 100 days per year were dedicated to entertainment to keep the masses happy with the elite competing to stage events and impress the next person up the pecking order. Sure recipe for low productivity.
