THE BEST PRESERVED ROMAN THEATRE IN EUROPE
At the heart of Provence, this large Theatre of Imperial Rome listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers an exceptional glimpse of Roman civilization. The Art & History Museum retraces Orange’s history from ancient times until the 20th century.
NEW THE VIRTUAL VISIT
In May, we will invite you to go back in time, thanks to a unique guided tour followed by wonderful 3D reconstitutions of the founding of the town of Orange, the construction of the Theatre, and its inauguration in the first century CE.
Wearing Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets, you will be able to admire the architectural splendour of the edifice under the reign of Augustus, as the stage wall was richly decorated with multicoloured marble slabs, statues in niches, friezes, and columns.
On Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September
The Roman Festival, a historical and family event, returns to the Roman Theatre of Orange. Historical re-enactors will occupy the monument to demonstrate the lifestyle of the legionaries who founded Orange.
