In 1992, the theatre of Mieza was uncovered at the southwestern edge of the excavated area. Its semicircular cavea (seating area) is laid out on a natural slope, with panoramic views over the plain. The positioning of the scaenae frons (stage background) deep in the horseshoe-shaped orchestra and the co-existence of Hellenistic and Roman structural elements, in conjunction with the pottery, date the theatre to early Roman times.
On 6 December 2008, DIAZOMA Association President Mr Stavros Benos visited the theatre of Mieza for the first time as part of his tour of the ancient theatres of Northern Greece. There, he met with all local bodies and institutions to discuss the theatre’s enhancement and promotion. Since then, significant progress has been made with DIAZOMA’s contribution to the work of the competent state institutions. The cavea has been restored, and the theatre is now a vibrant member of the local community. After its restoration, the ancient theatre of Mieza opened to the public on 7 August 2017.
