Details

On Stage shows everything what must be done before the curtain can be lifted and the prepared decorations of an opera house can be seen on stage so that the performance can start. The word „stage machinery“ describes only very inadequately the interaction of hundreds of people in highly skilled occupations, which you can learn only partially or not at all – unless you practice them: the flies, sinking, props, … On Stage offers not only a glimpse behind the stage but also to mysterious places on, under and next to the stage, a preparatory drama that is as dramatic as the play itself.

After Metamorphoses, Creation, Celebration, Close-up, Passion, Emotion and Glamour, On Stage is the 8th volume in an encyclopaedic series about the Wiener Staatsoper, conceived to grow by one volume per year until 2019, when the opera house celebrates its 150th anniversary.
