Field Trip to the Dionysos Theatre

On Wednesday 9 October, Grade 12 took a field trip to the archaeological site of the Theatre of Dionysos, on the southern slopes of the Acropolis. This was linked to their study of drama for Part 3 Literature: Texts & Contexts, of the Group 1 courses. Students observed first-hand where drama was created and performed, learned about the terminology of classical tragedy, and were able to draw informed conclusions about the religious importance of drama in 5thc. BC Athens.
