Surtitle pioneers

Surtitling is the art of displaying translations in multiple ways during a theatre or opera performance, in synchronisation with the spoken words of the actors/performers/singers. PANTHEA is a network of highly experienced professionals, mainly in France and Germany that have been active in surtitling for more than 15 years. We constantly extend our network and integrate talented freelancers and innovative technologies. Our team has been amongst the first to introduce surtitles for foreign visitors, notably in Berlin and Paris.
