This is a follow-up article to 'Opera Copenhagen' , please read original article first.


The acoustic design of the Opera provides excellent conditions for the production, rehearsal and performance of opera and ballet.

The main auditorium, with which the musical director Michael Schønwandt and the Opera Director Kasper Holten are delighted, includes a very flexible orchestra pit.

Elevators allow 3 pit sizes and there is the option to use overhung areas at the sides and rear of the pit. These areas can be closed off with acoustical panels, which can be reversed to provide local sound absorption or reflection.

A modular orchestra pit rail allows for acoustic transparency or reflection so that the sound from different sections of the orchestra may be more easily balanced.

The Oriental Arts Centre in Shanghai is an impressive cultural project designed by French Architect Paul Andreu.

Its architecture looks like a large sculpture, shaped as an orchid that is opening up towards the sky. This lobed structure allows the spatial articulation of the different venues and their complexities while giving the project an aspect of unity.
