The front wall of the building was decorated like a palace, or a temple, and served as background scenery for the play.

这栋建筑的前墙被装饰成了一座宫殿或者一个神殿,作为戏剧的背景。
The building was also a storage place for costumes, props, things like that. Yes, Robert?
这栋建筑也是存放戏服、小道具等等事物的地方。Robert,有什么问题吗?
So, did they decorate the skene for each play or, um, change the scenery during the play, like we do today?
所以他们会为每一部戏剧装饰skene,还是在戏剧进行时切换布景,就像我们现在的做法一样?
Or, did the whole story take place in one setting?
还是整个故事都发生在一个场景之下?
Well, everything the audience saw happened in that one setting usually in front of either a temple or a palace,
观众看到的所有内容都发生在一个场景之下,通常要么在一个神殿前,要么在一座宫殿前,
but the audience didn’t witness all events in the story.
但是观众不会看到故事里的所有事件。
Some events couldn’t be presented convincingly, so the playwrights had them take place somewhere off stage, where the audience couldn’t see them.
有些事件无法令人信服地呈现出来,所以编剧把这些事件移到了台下的某个地方进行,一个观众看不到它们的地方。
And then news of the event would be reported by one of the characters. Diane?
然后这个事件的消息会由其中一个角色口述出来。Diane,请说?
Last summer, I saw...Hippolytus.
去年夏天我看了Hippolytus。
Excellent! I hope you enjoyed it.
很棒!希望你喜欢那出戏。
Definitely. So, at one point, you see Hippolytus being sent off by his father, then a little later,
当然了。在某个时刻,Hippolytus被他的父亲送走了,然后稍晚一点后,
a messenger arrives and describes how Hippolytus was riding in his chariot when a giant bull appeared out of the ocean,
一个信使到了,描述了Hippolytus正驾着车,然后一个巨大的公牛从海洋中出现
and caused the chariot to crash, and then, after we hear what happened to Hippolytus, he’s carried back on stage where he dies.
并导致那辆二轮战车坠毁了,然后,在我们听到Hippolytus的遭遇之后,他又被抬回了舞台上他死去的地方。
Exactly. I mean, can you imagine trying to show all that action, a giant animal rising out of the sea?
正是这样。我是说,你能想象出试着展现那全部的动作吗?一个巨大的动物从海里飞起来?
Um, Okay. The next area was the space the ancient Greeks called the orchestra.
好了。下一个区域是古希腊人称为orchestra的地方。
The orchestra was either round, as you see here, or a semi-circle.
orchestra是圆形的,就像你们在这里看到的一样,也可以是半圆的。
Um, in ancient Greek, the word orchestra actually meant the dancing place, because this is where the chorus danced and sang.
在古希腊,orchestra这个单词实际上是跳舞的地方的意思,因为这是歌舞队跳舞和唱歌的地方。
