The 10-meter-diameter revolving stage has been completed, and the structure of the porch system above the auditorium and the walking surface of the porch system above the stage are being prepared. Thanks to the investment, the most modern stage technology will be built in the Csokonai Fórum, formerly referred to as the Latinovits Theater, said László Papp, Mayor of Debrecen.
The chamber theater would be named after Zoltán Latinovits, while the studio theater would take on the name of Árpád Kóti, thus commemorating the work of these two great artists in Debrecen.
The complete acoustic wall covering has been completed in the Orpheum, and the sound and lighting cabling is currently underway.
The work continues with the construction of the acoustic suspended ceiling and then with the floor covering. The Csokonai Fórum has more than 5,000 square feet of space to serve theatrical needs, as the mayor indicated.
The gates of the new theater are scheduled to open in the spring of 2022. The complete renovation of the Csokonai Theater building in Oshuhu will be completed in 2023. After the opening of both theater buildings, a total of 1,200 theater-goers can take part in the performances during one evening each.
