»The new resonance ground in the orchestra pit of the Municipal Theatre Bern optimizes the sound quality deeply and obvious for all parties involved. The musicians now can hear each other with greater precision and the audience can differentiate between the single instruments very clear.«

Ignatius-Soundingboard in Municipal Theatre Bern

The Municipal Theatre Bern is a magnificent neo-classical building from 1903, which hosts a “Dreispartenbühne”, featuring ballet, opera and theatre performances.

Because of the acoustical problems of the orchestra pit tests with Ignatius have been performed, which won around. Ignatius installed the new resonance ground in the summer brake 2009.

»The new resonance ground in the orchestra pit of the Municipal Theatre Bern optimizes the sound quality deeply and obvious for all parties involved. The musicians now can hear each other with greater precision and the audience can differentiate between the single instruments very clear. The sound of the orchestra now is more nuanced, more transparent and also softer and warmer. The resonance ground leads to a decisive improvement of the musical quality and therefore is a clear advantage for the theatre.«
Statement of the principle conductor and musical director of the Municipal Theatre, Srvoljub Dinic, after the premiere

»The new resonance ground seems to be successful, the acoustic was excellent.«
The Bernese daily paper, “Der Bund”

The Ignatius-Resonanceground installed in the orchestra pit consists of single plates, which are joined together by tongue and groove. The black varnished ground also optical is a win.

The Ignatius resonance ground is perfect adapted to the geometry of the lifting parts of the stage. The Ignatius-elements without any problem can also be demounted when necessary. Additional expenses are nearly negligible with this solution.
