Just heard a report on NPR's Morning Edition that for the first time in
1500 years, the Roman Colosseum was used last night for a performance
(Oedipus Rex). A partial restoration has taken eight years. Only 700
people were allowed in, though, down from the original 50,000 capacity;
they probably didn't have fire marshals back then :)
