Stage The room features a central stage ("large stage" as defined by "MStättVO" - German technical guidelines for public venues) with a protective curtain made of fiberglass fabric. The stage is equipped with 9 rising platforms and 2 forestage platforms. The 9 rising platforms can be adjusted from 0.00 m to +2.00 m (0.00 = room level). Forestage platform 1 is a two-story platform and can be adjusted from 0.00 m to +1.00 m. Forestage platform 2 is normally kept at room level. However, if the sets that are installed there are removed, it can be raised to stage level (+1.00 m) or lowered by up to -1.80 m. In this case, it can be used together with forestage platform 1 to create an orchestra pit. The platforms move at a speed of 2.5 cm/s.
