Virtually every seat in the Komische Oper Berlin is equipped with an individual display on which the text of the performance can be optionally read – and in several languages too (excluding concerts, concert-based performances and children's operas). While the translations into English, French and German highlight Berlin's importance to international culture tourism, the translation into Turkish is also intended to serve as an important signal to the city. After all, Berlin is the city with the world's largest Turkish community outside of Turkey. In this regard too, the Komische Oper Berlin sees itself as the »opera house for everyone«.
