Acoustics of Russian Classical Opera Houses

Document Thumbnail

Some acoustic problems of theater halls built in the classical style (stalls in a horse-shoelike shape and several rows of balconies along the walls) have been studied. A list of such theater halls built in Russia and existing to this day is given. The main parameters of the halls, such as dimensions and number of seats, and a full bibliography dealing with research into their acoustics are presented. The results of acoustic measurements in the halls are analyzed and some recommendations are proposed which may be useful for the renovation of old halls and the acoustic design of new ones.
