1995, 1998 - 2000
Dresden’s Semper Opera House was officially reopened on 13 February 1985, exactly 40 years to the day after its destruction. While the façade, foyer and auditorium were carefully rebuilt following the historical model of 1841, the main stage was greatly enlarged by the addition of two side stages. During the summer breaks of 1998-2000, SBS extensively overhauled the drives and control systems of all stage machinery.
The upgrading included work to ensure that all equipment met with modern safety regulations, the installation of a modern control system to improve operating safety, ease of use, synchronisation and repeatability. In addition, a new point hoist system was installed.
