The grand theater of Ephesus is a very well preserved and very fascinating building. This structure, built of marble, has a width of 145 meters; in its heyday, it could accommodate up to 25,000 spectators. The Ephesus Grand theatre was never covered by a roof. Though, an awning was added in the middle of the 2nd century AD to supply weather protection for the spectators. In the past, Ephesus Grand Theatre was not only for used artistic activity but also for used gladiator fights.
Even today, Ephesus Grand theatre is used for concerts and artistic activities. Many celebrities came to Ephesus for concerts. For example;
