*Why Romans went to the spectacle? - blood -food -revelry
*TIME LINE: Political background of the story: the king, greece vs roman, who the musicians were; then describe what kind of spectacles they use to introduce current spectacle they're about to see; spectacle!; audience reaction; further information
-Using the Roman General as a device to "control" the audience/help ensure audience participation
