Pronunciation: [ˈamfɪθˌi͡ətə] (IPA)

An amphitheater is a circular or oval-shaped open-air venue typically used for public performances, such as concerts, theatrical productions, and sporting events. However, there are several alternative words to describe such an outdoor arena. One synonym could be "arena," which is often used to refer to spaces for sports or other entertainment. Another synonym could be "coliseum," which is a more grandiose term often used to describe historical venues in ancient Rome.

Famous quotes with Amphitheater

  • Passing round Point Conception, and steering easterly, we opened the islands that form, with the mainland, the canal of Santa Barbara. There they are, Santa Cruz and Santa Rosa, and there is the beautiful point, Santa Buenaventura; and there lies Santa Barbara on its plain, with its amphitheater of high hills and distant mountains. There is the old white mission with its belfries, and there the town, with its one-story adobe houses, with here and there a two-story wooden house of later build; yet little is it altered — the same repose in the golden sunlight and glorious climate, sheltered by its hills; and then, more remindful than anything else, there roars and tumbles upon the beach the same grand surf of the great Pacific... the same bright-blue ocean, and the surf making just the same monotonous, melancholy roar, and the same dreamy town.
    Richard Henry Dana
