I tagged building=bandstand, but I know of numerous others so a tag in 
its own right would be good.

I can think of at least four different things like this:
- the Victorian bandstand as above,
- a stage where theatre is performed (Covent Garden - the performance 
area, not the Opera)
- an orchestra stage (which might be the same thing, or might be 
exclusive) - I have in mind the one on the banks of the Charles River in 
Boston. Is this in fact different from a bandstand except in scale? 
Clearly at a high level no and at a deeper level yes.
- a historic amphitheatre still used for contemporary productions - like 
the one at Orange in France

Also, doesn't the Parthenon has a permanent theatrical seating area for 
the Son et lumiere displays, so there's no stage but there is an auditorium.
