This print shows a corner of the interior of a theater. A small part of the stage is visible, and two performers stand on the stage. To the left, engulfing the view of the stage, the balconies wind from the lower right to the upper left and fill the top third of the print. The audience is portrayed as dark strokes of seated figures that are not detailed or well defined. The audience sits in darkness.
