Salzburger Landestheater, Salzburg, Austria

The Salzburger Landestheater, built in the middle of the 18th century and frequented by composer W. A. Mozart, is one of Austria's most important theatres and was reopened to the public on 12 November 2022 after a six-month renovation project focused on renewing its historic splendour with frescoes and gilded stucco decoration, modernising the stage with up-to-date technology and replacing all the seats in the stallsthe boxes and the balcony.

In addition to its own annual programme with more than 400 performances, during the summer season the Landestheater also hosts a number of productions related to the Salzburg International Music Festival.

Aresline won the contract for the supply of the theatre’s seating, characterised by an elegant and rigorous design and embellished with wooden elements ideally suited to the rare beauty of their surroundings.

The supply of seats was also accompanied by a study of solutions to several technical problems: the possibility of keeping the floor ventilation system in its existing position, overcoming problems of double floor inclination, making customised seats, and making some rows and seats removable to reconfigure the stalls according to specific needs.

The results of the study and its subsequent implementation allowed Aresline to fully meet the customer's needs, both in terms of proposed solutions and stringent delivery deadlines.

After its restoration, the Salzburger Landestheater is now considered the most beautiful theatre in Austria.
