AES Paris 2016
Technical Tour TT5

Monday, June 6, 14:00 — 16:00 (Off-site 1)

TT5 - Opéra Garnier

Abstract:
Opéra Garnier is the institutionalized “grand dame” of the Parisian opera. Designed and built by Charles Garnier it was supposedly not clear to him if the acoustics would be quite satisfactory for its opening in 1875. The worries were unjustified; the sound is beautiful – a traditional opera house par excellence, enhanced by the more recent ceiling painting by Chagall. Foyers and back stage architecture offer an insight into the cultural world of dance and opera at the time. Mr. Gouhier from the Technical Direction and Mr. Breant from the Sound Departement of Opéra National will guide through the house with explanations regarding the acoustics from Mr. Lachenmayr (Müller-BBM).

Maximum 25 Persons [because of the security check, attendees should not bring any baggage or backpacks]
