Deutsches Schaupielhaus Hamburg, Theater, Germany
At the end of the 19th century, Hamburg had developed into a modern harbour city of world format as a result of the foundation of the German Reich and a rapid economic upswing. However, until then, Hamburg was missing a representative theater stage that could accommodate the city's growing self-confidence and its upper middle class. The theaters in Hamburg at that time mainly offered music genres and commercial entertainment.
In June 1899, 84 partners, mostly Hamburg financiers and businessmen, founded the " Joint Stock Company Deutsches Schauspielhaus". They commissioned the experienced Vienna architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer with a new theater building, which in its neo-Baroque form was based on the Vienna Volkstheater.
With its capacity for 1,831 visitors, the Deutsches Schauspielhaus Hamburg was extremely ambitious and was also designed to be larger than many other operas. To this day the Schauspielhaus is one of the largest spoken theaters in the German-speaking region.
Since 2017 the Deutsches Schauspielhaus Hamburg also uses Voice-Acoustic audio components: 12 x Alea-4 loudspeakers with U-brackets, which are individually driven by 2 x HDSP-6A system amplifiers.
