Munich 19: Opera!

(viewed 849 times)
Bookmark and Share
Our last stop was the Beyerische Staatsoper - the State Opera House in Munich. Huge exterior, very grand; five stacked balconies; a very high, fully automated fly-tower. It wasn't quite as big as the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden (according to the ROH's Technical Manager, who was also there): while the ROH has trucks the same size as the stage area for shunting around complete sets, the Staatsoper only has truckable sections of 3m by 7m, so the set has to be broken down and reassembled each time: keeping an 800-strong crew busy almost every day of the year is probably what keeps their 180million Euro/year budget ticking over.
