Embodying the best in scientific plane ning and functional design, the Palads Teatret is a model of medium-sized theatre construction. From the facade to the stage, the decorative elements have been integrated along simple lines with the working components into a tasteful, satisfying whole. Built at a cost of $500,000, with equipment valued at $70,000, it is a luxurious Showplace by any standard, and refiects the highly intensive development of individual theatres which has come about in Denmark.

In a country which is notable for its natural beauty, prosperity, and high degree of social progress, this luxury is altogether appropriate.

MODERN EQUIPMENT (see data above) features the appointments. Note the unusual wall Extuxes.
