One of the main attractions at Ceasarea is the Roman Theater; it presently seats 3,600 for summer concerts and performances.

Only a few rows of the original stone seats remain (see photo at left).  It is a gorgeous venue, looking out over the Mediterranean Sea, surrounded by the antiquities of Ceasarea.

While the structure was magnificent, I felt the site had been defiled by the plastic chairs, modern stage and metal framework for lights and speakers.

Thought for the Day:  Sixties are now considered a historical period, just like the Roman Empire.   Dave Barry
