The theater  contain 45 rows that may seat  6000-8500 people. It is  divided into 3 sectors( maeniana).  It is almost all carved in the rock.  In the 2nd century A.D., the theater was enlarged by the Romans, who apparently cared little for Nabatean traditions, and cut into nearby Nabatean tombs to create a vast 7,000-seat venue.
