This contribution focuses on the reception of the Roman tragedy of the archaic age, as can be retrieved from Cicero’s testimony, based on the attendance of theatrical representations and stimulated by  the contiguity between the dramatic performance and that of the orator (as often emphasized by Cicero himself ), with regard, in particular, to vocal and gestural language and to the role played by pathos for the purpose of capturing the audience. After a quick synthesis on the innovations introduced by Cicero in rhetorical theory in relation to these aspects, an anthology of passages illustrates the  dramatic techniques adopted by the actors, the use of dramatic representations for political purposes, and the different responses of the audience to the ethical and emotional solicitations produced by the texts performed on stage.
