The ancient theater of Philippopolis was built during the time of the Roman emperor Marcus Ulpius Trajan (98 – 117 AD). and was discovered during archaeological excavations from 1968 to 1979 by the Plovdiv Archaeological Museum. It is located between Jambaz Tepe and Taksim Tepe. The theater of Philipopol is the only preserved ancient theater building in the Bulgarian lands. The building has been adapted for the modern cultural life of Plovdiv and various performances are held in it
The restoration of the Roman theater in Plovdiv is recognized as one of the best achievements of the Bulgarian conservation school. The intervention is limited to the limits determined on the basis of careful research and by the exclusion of assumptions. The reconstruction was done strictly by the anastylosis method, and the new material was visibly marked.
Today, the theater is a center in the skyline of the southern part of Trihalmieto, one of the emblems of Plovdiv and a functioning stage for classical drama, dance and music.
