The highest is the Logeion, where symbolic representations are made- the second, or Prologeion, is reserved for historical episodes, and the third, or Orchestra, is employed for dances and group scenes. The space between the Orchestra and the auditorium is known as the Forefield. Entrances and Departures of performers are indicated according to points of the compass, and have the following values from the point of view of the audience:North - from the rear of the Logeion toward the auditorium.South - from beneath the auditorium and toward the stage.East - right of stage.West - left of stage.The ActionThe entire action of the Pageant is by Pantomime, the words of the book being spoken by concealed readers placed near the audience or sung by a massed chorus.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
