Perhaps the definition of amphitheatre having to surround the stage is too
strict? Surely it is still an amphitheatre if the stage is at the front
like a Greek theatre?

Doesn't seem to be much consensus on existing examples.....

Taormina Greek Theatre https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/42403497
Regents Park Open Air Theatre https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/26747380
Minack Theatre, Cornwall https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/602821183
