Theatre was erected before the Roman period, in other words it is a Greco-Roman style theatre, built with its back leaning against the hill, but works of repair and modification were performed later by the Roman.
Cavea was separated from the stage structure by the parados ( uncovered entrance sections )
As in the Greek style. However, the fact that the Diazoma ( passageway ) dividing cavea ( seating area for spectators ) into two was seated on a gallery, which also provided entrance here from outside, and that the stage structure had multiple floors reflect the Roman character.
Theatre has a seating capacity of 15000 spectators and cavea was divided into two by diazoma. There are 19 sitting rows in the lower section while the upper section hosts 23 sitting rows. The spectators were able to enter from the outside directly to diazoma, through an arched passage ( vomitorium ) as an advantage of the theatre’s location on the slope of the hill.
On the back section of cavea there is a gallery in Roman style, which connects to cavea by means of arched passages.
The cavea is separated from the flat place reserved to the orchestra with a 1,80 m high wall.
It is obvious that to protect the spectators during the gladiator and wild animal fights of the Roman period this was done.
The stage building of theatre is multi floor, with the lowest floor being a 50m. long gallery. Stage building construction date is 2nd century AD. Stage building’s side facing the spectators was richly decorated with 5 niches and the statues inside these niches between the columns of each floor.
The friezes bearing the description of mythological scenes and the statues decorating the walls of the theatre are today exhibited in place and also in Antalya Archaeology Museum.
From the scene ( the staff building ) to the stage 5 gates lead. The outer back wall of the stage building was converted to a monumental fountain with decorations of korinth style columns and niches.
