1. Concept of Platea

Referred to as audience to the sector of a theater or a stadium that is intended for viewers. The audience consists of the space in question along with the seats so everyone can enjoy the show sitting.
For example: "the audience for the next match of Argentina will have a price of five hundred pesos", "actor got the look, observed the audience and was excited to tell her father", "the ball was rejected by the defender and ended up impacting on a spectator that he was in the audience".
It can be understood as a space of the enclosure as well as the armchair audience itself. In general, access to the stalls priced higher than other popular called sectors. The football stadiums, in some countries, often segmented in popular (with people following the party's foot) and stalls. There may also be more exclusive sectors, such as boxes, which offer greater comfort.
By extension, it is possible is to appoint the people who go to a show or event, such as an auditorium: "the audience was not satisfied with the performance of the singer and soon began to whistle", "the coach will have to explain to the audience why he reacted that way", "the footballer dedicated his goal to the audience".
There are other uses of the concept of an auditorium. In the mythology of Greece, an auditorium was the name of a nymph, descendant of Asopus and Metope. This mythological being, in turn, contributed the name to a town of antiquity who was in what today is Boeotia.

2 Definition of Platea

Platea (latin Plataea or Plataeae, Greek, Πλάταια «Plataia», or more often in the plural, Πλαταιαί Plataia or Plataiai) was an ancient city of Boeotia separated from Thebes by the river Asopus. It was situated between the mountains Helicon and Kithairon, the latter forms the border between Megara, Attica and Boeotia. The Thebans told that the city had been founded by them, but in the 2nd century d. C. the geographer Pausanias thought they were indigenous and derived its name from Plataea daughter of Asopus. The adjective is plating (Πλαταιεύϛ). The name of the territory is γή Πλαταιίϛ, Πλαταιἆσιν, έν ταἷϛ Πλαταιαἷϛ. 
In 506 BC the Asopus River constituted the border between Thebes and Plataea. Platea limited West Thespiae, to the East with Hisias, which in that year was in the hands of Athens. 
The territory of stalls has been estimated at close to 170 km².
