The wall runs along the front entrance of the theatre and on the interior of the theatre looks down on the stage.

The work stabilized sections of the stone wall that were in danger of detachment, thus endangering visitors. The scaffolding that ran along the whole facade, and that was a fixture of the monument in the last twenty years, has been removed.
