SST1 Historiography

This website is a self-proclaimed Virtual Reality Tour of all "historic theatres"...which sounds quite impressive i guess

It has listed 23 "historic theatres" from Greece….Delphi….Isthmia….Dionysus
"Great!" i hear you cry from your office chairs
hmmmmmmmmm, well thats what i thought. But then i realised that the 'tour' is not available on any one of these 23 theatres. You can't even get a photo of any one….
Maybe the tour's were all fully booked or something...Maybe there's a height restriction

So, venturing on i clicked on one of the only dozen or so theatres of the hundreds listed across the world that was actually available.
Turkish Theatre here we come!
In reality the tours consist of some brief facts about the theatre in question and then three thumbnail prints of the theatre from different angles.
By clicking on the 'virtual reality' part we can chose to see a diagram of the stage from different views which, though admittedly helpful, is a little disappoiting after the gusto of the homepage

My suggestion is to seek out other similar pages whose owners have the dedication and material to give you a thorough insight into important Greek theatres and their layouts
Or, alternatively, close your eyes and imagine Hugh Denard talking you through the theatres...undoubtedly your imagination is more helpful than this website, and his sultry voice will lull you into a sleepy, blissful trance-like state..........
