The stage is perfectly lit, the PA system doesn’t have any back coupling and the set decorations keep the audience spellbound. What would a show be without first rate event technicians, scene painters or make-up artists? Probably very quiet and colorless.
That’s why once a year at the Baden-Baden Award, those people who are usually backstage are now in the spotlight. True artists are not only on stage, but often behind it.
