Virtual reality in the Roman Theatre
All year round

The historic monument have been digitally reconstituted, providing visitors with a 360° virtual tour via virtual reality headsets. You are invited to immerse in the heart of Roman antiquity, providing with an intense immersive experience. Taken back to the first century BCE, you can see the construction of the theatre, from the founding of the town of Arausio to its inauguration.

Discovering cultural heritage from a new perspective

The Antique Theatre in Orange is moving into the digital age in order to highlight all its former splendour. Promoting cultural heritage, virtual reality will give you the chance to take a step back in time and space and enjoy a veritable sensorial and emotional experience.

Designed to complement the traditional tour, this digital device will take you back to 36 BCE, when the town of Arausio was founded by the Romans. Before their eyes, the ramparts are built, the roads of the future Roman town are constructed, work is carried out on the hill in order to create the theatre’s tiered seating, and then, stone by stone, the theatre begins to take shape with its magnificent decorations.

Conception team

Culturespaces commissioned Art Graphique et Patrimoine—a leading French company that specialises in the digitisation of cultural heritage—to make the film in close collaboration with historians and researchers, members of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Virtual Reality (Centre Interdisciplinaire de Réalité Virtuelle or CIREVE) in Caen. Archaeologists, art historians, architects, stonemasons, and restorers also contributed to the successful completion of the historical 3D reconstitution.
