  1. Orchestra pit

    An orchestra pit is the area in a theater in which musicians perform. Orchestral pits are utilized in forms of theatre that require music or in cases when incidental music is required. The conductor is typically positioned at the front of the orchestral pit facing the stage. An orchestra pit can be any size, but it is usually big enough to fit a small sized orchestra or other small ensemble.
