Reviving the Ancient City of Beit She’an
Establishing the "Caesarea of the North"
After many years of no large-scale productions at the Roman Theater in Beit Shean due to the need of restoration and construction work, the INHFA team is ready to “break the silence”! Today, significant restoration work in Beit Shean is underway to allow it to reclaim its vital status as a vibrant cultural center as it was during the Roman era.
During the peak of the Roman Empire, Bet She’an, also known as Scythopolis, was a bustling city. Due to its historical significance and the fact that it contains the largest Roman theater in Israel, it has the potential to be the “Caesarea of the North”.
As part of the restoration project:
- Orchestra flooring will be installed in front of the stage.
- A backstage area will be created for the artists to prepare for future performances.
- 2,000 seats will be added to the theater.
- The stage’s infrastructure will be improved.
The restoration will be completed next year, and we hope to see you soon at Beit Shean.
