despite the many voices at the time, who would have preferred a theater signed by Romanian architects, Fellner & Helmer were selected for the new project, based on their already impressive portfolio.

before modernising the stage system, there were spots from where actors could have whispered and naturally push the sound to the farthest seats in the theatre. so refned was the acoustic system designed by Fellner & Helmer.

numerous ornamental details transcend the limits of the unique project and become representative leitmotifs for the Fellner & Helmer signature.
