Description: In 1903, the William Randolph Hearst Greek Theatre opened in Berkeley at the University of California with a performance befitting an amphitheater modeled after architecture from ancient Greece - Aristophanes' "The Birds," a Greek play presented in Greek by a student cast.
Since then, the site has become a popular venue for ceremonies, classical music performances, plays, and more recently, rock concerts. Audiences there have seen it all - from Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead to Sarah Bernhardt, Corazon Aquino to the Dalai Lama, Janet Reno to Bill Cosby. And it's put UC Berkeley on the cultural map.
