Theatre History Festspielhaus

The Bayreuth Festspielhaus theater is located in the Bavarian town of Bayreuth in Germany and is reserved for the representation of the sun works of Wagner. It is located on the green hill a short distance from the city center.

Wagner himself was to take charge of supervising the work of execution which was used to fund the money allocated by King Ludwig II of Bavaria who was as obsessed by the works of his friend Wagner.

The building was inaugurated with the first work called “Ring of the Nibelung” performed in most evenings between August 13 and August 17, 1876.

Among the main features of the new theater suffered the most notable were those of the total absence of side boxes, furniture characterized by the utmost simplicity, the semicircular of the audience and the orchestra pit reserved, recessed under the stage to make the musicians invisible to viewers in so it focus attention exclusively on the work dramaturgical in total darkness.

The orchestra pit was also meant to reduce the volume of the orchestra than the voices of the singers to equalize all the musical elements for a perfect acoustic effect.
