The opera house on the Unter den Linden boulevard, Berlin, Germany – home to the Berlin State Opera – is to undergo extensive renovation, during which time it will be equipped with audio and stage management technology by Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup.
Stagetec will supply its AURUS mixing console and NEXUS audio network for sound editing and routing, and the PerformanceCeTRL system for stage management. The new opera house will feature three stage management desks, two of which are from the INSPIration series launched earlier this year.
Audio technology for the building will be provided by the Berlin branch of Stagetec in a joint venture with another German firm, Amptown System Company. Amptown will be responsible for “video and sound reinforcement [and] project management”.
The opera house is expected to remain closed throughout 2015.
