The Vienna State Opera is one of the most famous and important opera houses in the world. With about 50 operas and 20 ballet performances every season it is a true repertoire theater with a special bonus: the orchestra consists of members of the world-renowned Vienna Philharmonic! The tour through this prestigeous house will include a behind-the-scenes look of the stage and the most prominent mechanical installations and will continue to various well-known halls within the State Opera like the “Gobelin-Saal,” the “Marmorsaal,” and the “Schwindfoyer.” There is also a fully-featured organ to be seen in the “Orgelsaal” before the visitors will get an in-depth view of the elaborate electro-acoustical possibilities like the tailor-made TOA ix-3000 theater-console, the computer-controlled amplifier- and sequence switching as well as the enormous loudspeaker installation. Professor Wolfgang Fritz, the head of the electroacoustical department, will be the guide on this exciting tour through one of the premier sights of Vienna and Austria.
