Staatstheater Nürnberg (Nürnberg State Theater)

Staatstheater Nürnberg’s new stage management system consists of a custom-made stage manager console, intercom, media controls, central video matrix switcher, cue light system, and an innovative 100V announcement system.

The Project: Staatstheater Nürnberg, offering the three genres of musical theater, drama, and ballet, numbers among Germany’s large theaters of national significance. It is a renowned venue for opera, operetta, classical musicals, children’s concerts, chamber concerts, and song recitals.

The Challenge: The Hamburg-based Amptown System Company received the brief to expand the communication channels in order to simplify the stage manager’s job during rehearsals and shows. This meant installing stage management technology with easy-to-understand user interfaces so that all those involved in the stage production are in contact with one another, and simultaneous listening and speaking are possible. In addition, ASC was to install a cue light system that also indicates which scene is currently taking place in the production.

The Solution: ASC created a tailored solution for the stage management alert and announcement system which makes the stage management team’s job smoother and simpler. The cue light system was newly designed to accommodate the Staatstheater’s specific needs. The new stage management system consists of a custom-made stage manager console with modular, individually configured control panels. This modular technology makes it easy for the theater’s in-house technicians to exchange components as needed. RTS® KP 32 CLD Color Display key panel intercom units were installed so that the stage manager can give commands to other participants and be reachable him/herself. An RTS® Cronus 32 x 32 intercom matrix establishes the intercom command paths and controls the announcement system while connecting foldback signals and activating special functions.

At the heart of the installation is a Crestron media control system that ties all the various components together. It is connected to the intercom as well as the 100V announcement system. The new cue light system reduces the stage manager’s work load by keeping everyone involved on the same page regarding the progress of the performance. The stage manager can use key panels to operate the cue light system, select call circuits, and route peripheral equipment via the central video matrix switcher.
