Theatra aims to compile publications and scientific presentations (exhibitions, conferences, symposia, thesis defenses etc.) concerning the architecture of ancient theatres and odeons. Buildings intended for political assemblies or ritual performances are not taken into account. Where possible, there are exact GPS coordinates and photographs of the buildings.
There are individual reviews for recent publications (from 2015 onwards). Each review includes a summary and analysis, and in some cases is accompanied by a critical opinion placed in square brackets. Whenever possible, there are links to online articles and books. Older major reference works relating to particular buildings, whole areas or the architecture of ancient theatres in general are also listed.

The language of the site is French.
