The summer stage has undergone extensive reconstruction this year. There are new conveniences and a renovated auditorium with adjustable roofing. The roof will protect the audience from bad weather, but can also be folded away in pleasant weather, so as not to hamper the beautiful view of the surrounding greenery and the picturesque New World area.
