Everything you see at Ithra is, at most, only half the story. So, what if you had a chance to discover the other half? The Behind the Scenes tour takes you on an adventure to the theater’s backstage, the orchestra pit, the flying tower, and the green-screen room, as well as a peek into how the lighting systems works. You will feel a part of the theater’s live shows. The tour will also take you to explore the library’s stockroom, which houses up to 500,000 books. You will discover how the copper ceilings and walls of the Great Hall were built. You will reach the highest point of the Knowledge Tower and much more.
Whether you are an engineer, designer, architect, student or just curious about architecture, the Behind the Scenes tour is for you!
