Does anyone here go to the theater? and i mean the classical kind, not the movie theater.

I'd just like to know if they use speakers to amplify the sound of the performers and if so, how loud does it get? I have tinnitus and I don't go to movie theaters/concerts/etc because of it. i do not want it to get worse

No way to guess this - I suggest earplugs!

Even the clapping for the encore can be painful.

Earplugs all the way - even sony walkman in- ear headphones cut a lot. Just have them with you at all times in there.

I got sat next to some git at a Van morrison concert - he was like a clapping monkey with hands like butter patts .. I was ringing for days after that shit.

I'm a theater critic and am out 3 or 4 times a week.

Almost all musicals are amplified these days, and for the big finales it sometimes feels like jet-engine-level decibels.

Almost no dramas or comedies are.

Most modern theaters are equipped with sound systems for the hearing-impaired. You borrow or rent (for a dollar or two) a set of earphones that broadcast the onstage voices without amplifying them for everyone else. I know hard-of-hearing people who swear by them. I don't know if they help with tinnitus, but they certainly wouldn't hurt.
