MODERN THEATRE - Nuovo Teatro dell'Opera, Florence
A theatre that can adapt to different requirements
The entire architectural complex was designed by Paolo Desideri and his firm Abdr. The theatre is mainly intended for concert music. The stage can accommodate up to 115 musicians and 100 choristers, but can also be easily adapted for theatrical performances. The single stalls area and the sections to the side of the stage make it possible, through the use of fast technical stage machinery, to alter the capacity of the theatre from 1100 to 500 spectators. This gives the Fondazione Maggio Fiorentino a tool that can present theatrical performances in the best possible way, thus optimising their management. In the best concert tradition, the interior panelling is made of pear wood, and special curtains are used to optimise the acoustics for each different layout and use of the theatre. TMA supplied all the seat and wooden panelling.
