Theatre is the art of telling a story through verbal messages, gestures, music, songs, poetry and dance. The word ‘’theatre’’ has Ancient Greek origins. Thèatron means ‘’a place for viewing,’’ while thèaomai has been interpreted as ‘’to watch’’ and ‘’to observe’’.

The stages where theatrical activities take place are usually designed and decorated  in tune with the genre and mood of the general plotline.  The actors’ costumes are ornate and suited for the specific narrative. The tone of the dialogues can be dramatic, light-hearted, uplifting, humorous, sad or optimistic.

Theatre originated in ancient Greece.  It is a product of the fabulous mixture of the music, poetry, design, rituals and energizing celebrations of the country’s mythical past. Theatre was also associated with the turbulent emotions and festive activities that accompanied weddings, funerals and civic celebrations.  Its themes often reflected  the socially engaging ideals of orators who delivered solemn speeches in public or in court.

The Greek theatre could be divided into three major categories: comedy, tragedy and satyr play. The first person who  analyzed Greek theatre, Aristotle, found a clear connection between the Dionysus festivals and theatre’s  mythical origin. All theatrical spectacles in ancient Greece took place in a huge semi-circular auditorium  with a seating capacity for 10 000 – 20 000 people. The stage consisted of a scene zone, a dressing room and a dance floor. The most important quality of a performer or an actor was the ability to deliver a clear message through words, voice, intonation and gestures.

Subsequently, the idea of theatre and its entertaining effect on the public spread in Rome and theatre itself took a variety of incredible forms such as acrobatics, nude dancing and street spectacles. Roman theatre became noted for the sophisticated tragedies of Seneca and the light-hearted , exhilarating comedies of Plautus. The progress of Latin literature  had an astonishing effect on Roman theatre, making its speeches more dramatic, elaborated and energizing.

Nowadays theatre has been presented in a plethora of forms: when it’s mixed  with music and singing, it is called opera. When theatre tells an uplifting and humorous story, it is in the form of a comedy. In the case when it treats a serious, solemn and controversial matter with a dramatic effect on society, it belongs to the tragedy genre. Musical theatre combines action with music and typically tells an amusing or an intriguing narrative of social importance. The most sophisticated examples of musical theatre can be seen on Broadway, a center of the most diverse creative musical narratives in the globe.

Drama is the most popular theatre genre and it refers to a fictional narrative in a theatrical form. Although the word drama referred to all kinds of theatre genres in the past such as comedy and drama, now drama signifies something that doesn’t fit into the comedy or tragedy genre.



Everyone who wants to entertain themselves to the max can choose to watch a theatre show. When you immerse in an amusing or a serious theatrical narrative, you will certainly enjoy your time!
