About us


Surtitling is the art of projecting translations above a stage during a theatre or opera performance, in synchronisation with the actors.
Our team has been amongst the first to introduce surtitles for foreign visitors, notably in Berlin, following the vision of Schaubühne director Thomas Ostermeier.
PANTHEA is made up of highly experienced teams in Paris, France, and Berlin, Germany, that have been active in surtitling for more than 15 years.
