Audio description is a service created for blind and visually impaired people, which makes scenes, costumes, and actors’ movements “visible,” i.e., those silent details that enable the visually impaired audience to fully witness the performance.
The service is performed by equipping the blind and visually impaired audience with wireless headphones, connected to the control room. From there, a narrator’s voice accompanies users along the narrative development of the performance by inserting itself into the pauses in the acting. The audio description text integrates with the theatrical script, never overlapping with the dialogue and soundtrack. Guide dogs are allowed in the auditorium.
ACCESS BY WHEELCHAIR
Dedicated spaces without architectural barriers
The red velvet-covered walls are enriched with period prints and paintings in full Art Nouveau style. Two side corridors, one of which is made accessible to people with motor disabilities, lead to the entrance to the stalls characterized by comfortable red velvet armchairs, favored by the slope for excellent visibility from any position.
The stage equipped with a trellis features measurements of 12 meters wide by 8 meters deep. The feature that makes the stage unique in Italy is the presence of 6 hydraulic system platforms, mobile and independent, which allow, if necessary, to create the pit for the orchestra and facilitate access to the stage and dressing rooms for people with motor disabilities.
