|Plan View||Sectional Views||Wings||Borders||Stage Floor||Apotheosis Area||Relief Area|
To help visualize the sectional view, imagine you are sitting in the audience: the frontispiece -- literally a false proscenium, seen here in gray -- frames the wings, borders, backshutters and the relief scene.
Now imagine that the stage was sliced in half, from down center to up center, and you moved from your seat in the center of the auditorium to a position backstage on stage left. You are looking from stage left to stage right, seeing just the edges of each part of the setting.
