In contrast with the Greek theatres, this Roman structure was not carved into a slope, but instead built on a flat surface. Space came about under the auditorium which could be used as passage areas for the movement of the spectators. These corridors were lined with arcades along the circumference of the structure. The typical ground plan for a Roman theatre consisted of a pure half-circle, containing an orchestra as well as the auditorium which surrounds it.
