I spent my day researching new amphitheaters. Our next project is to “replace” the current amphitheater at Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park.
The first amphitheater I thought of (beyond the Colosseum and the Epidaurus) was Renzo Piano’s Auditorium Parco della Musica mainly because I’ve been there.
After further research I found some other interesting outdoor amphitheaters:
Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater- Morrison, Colorado
Azeala Park Amphitheater- Brooklings
This one has a more emotional connection with me. It is the DTE energy music theater in Clarkston, MI. An outdoor pavilion where many concerts and shows are performed over the summer. I actually saw the Backstreet Boys there over this last summer. There is seating within the pavilion and then “lawn seats” which are all seated over the steep hill beyond the theater.
The Ford Amphitheater- Tampa FL
Bexhill Bandstand- De La Warr Pavilion- South East England. This bandstand is actually portable. Very cool.
This amphitheater is a take off the theatres in Greece. Peace Amphitheater- Kyun-Hee University in Korea.
The Smythe Brothers Amphitheater- Dana Point Park- California
Asser Levy Bandshell- Coney Island NY
Eddy Arnold Amphitheater- Crockett Park, Brentwood, TN
Maidstone- Millenium Park, Chicago
