At Prolight + Sound (April 26-29, 2022), the "Opus - German Stage Award" will be awarded to productions that have created special visitor experiences through the innovative use of event technology. Applicants can submit their projects on the Prolight + Sound website until October 1, 2021.

The past one and a half years have been an unprecedented test for all professionals in the sector. Nevertheless, the productive cooperation between organizers, venue operators, directors, technicians, artists, and other trades has produced memorable stage events in compliance with strict regulations. "The players in the event industry have shown a special creative power and ingenuity. They have mastered the most demanding tasks in order to reconcile safety and entertainment. Against this background, the Opus 2022 is more than ever a bow to the innovative spirit of our industry," says Mira Wölfel, director of Prolight + Sound.

The Opus has been awarded to outstanding personalities and projects since 1995. The focus is on the technical realization of theatre and musical productions, concerts and tours, as well as corporate events. The Opus is awarded annually at Prolight + Sound. The initiators of the award are the VPLT (Association of Media and Event Technology), the EVVC (European Association of Event Centres) and Messe Frankfurt. Most recently, the Opus went to Philip Stölzl's production of "Rigoletto" at Seebühne Bregenz (pictured).

A jury of experts, consisting of members of the association, representatives of Messe Frankfurt, and other industry experts, will select the winning projects from the submissions.
