Tour: Control Booth
Tivoli Stage Crew
Created in 2003, the control booth is the modern area for
controlling lighting and sound for live events. One row of seats
was lost but this area is necessary for modern shows. It contains
the sound mixing equipment, plus the modern electronic stage
lighting dimming system. Computers are included for various
functions. 1 to 3 crew members occupy this area during a live
show depending upon the technical requirements. When not in
use it is covered to keep it secure and clean.
