A large traditional arched staging which is located at the front of the stage is called a Proscenium stage. The audience is directly faces the stage, which is typically raised several feet above front row audience level. In Latin, the stage name is known as “in front of the scenery." The stage is used mainly for drama, plays, musicals, concerts etc. The main stage is the space behind the proscenium arch, often marked by a curtain which can be lowered or drawn closed.
