Denizli, 27 Jul (ONA) --- The restoration of a 2200-year-old ancient theater in Turkey’s southwestern Denizli province has completed.
 
In a press statement, Prof. Celal Simsek, in charge of the restoration and excavation efforts, said that the old theater has a capacity of 15,000 people. He added that the project has been extremely expensive and that it was done in a very short time despite its size.
 
The theater which is located in the ancient city of Laodicea that is on the UNESCO Tentative List took 15 years for its restoration, the Turkish Anadolu Agency (AA) reported.
