Adelaide Festival Center Theatre
In the Adelaide Festival Center Theatre, independent E-coustic Systems processing is incorporated in both the house and the stage. This allows the venue to successfully present Opera and Ballet with the orchestra in the pit, and Symphony with musicians positioned on the raised stage extension. The stage system can be adjusted independently from the house, and provides a uniform sense of hall return throughout the stage area. The renovated Theatre with E-coustic Systems installed debuted Wagner's Ring Cycle, which was met with high critical acclaim from reviewers worldwide.
