The Pianodrome at Leith Theatre

RESONATOR festival | 4 – 8 Dec 2019

The world’s first amphitheatre made entirely from pianos is resident at the historic Leith Theatre.
Come and play.

The Pianodrome is a 100-seater amphitheatre constructed from over 50 discarded pianos.

From 12 Nov – 8 December it is situated in the main auditorium of Leith Theatre.

The Pianodrome and the Leith Theatre have so much in common it was as if they were made for each other. They ‘resonate’. The excellent natural accoustic of Leith Theatre’s main auditorium added to the Pianodrome’s sound enhancing properties and our five embedded playable pianos makes for a spectacular surround sound experience that is immersive, engaging, surprising and constantly changing.

Play the pianos, sit on the tiered seats made from pianos, watch the flow of people and listen to the evolving multi piano soundscape from high in the gallery.
