The little-know ancient theatre of Mieza in central Macedonia reopens to the public on August 7th, the night of the first August full moon. The theatre, which has been restored to its former beauty, lies near the modern town Naousa.
It is believed that it was the focal point of the ancient town of Mieza, where Aristotle taught a young Alexander the Great between 343 BC and 340 BC. The reopening will be commemorated with a performance of the famous ‘Iphigenia in Aulis’ play by Euripides, directed by Thodoris Gonis.
The theatre dates to the Late Hellenistic period, though the form in which it is preserved today belongs to the Roman times. It was built on a hillside with a panoramic view over the valley and its capacity is estimated at 1500 spectators.
