Panthea is the European leader of surtitling solutions for the performing arts and provides an all-inclusive surtitling service, from editing and translation of surtitles, to technical implementation in venues and service during performances.

Panthea’s mission is to make theatre, opera and performance as accessible as possible for everyone, beyond language barriers and individual disibilities.

Passionate teams based in Berlin and Paris joined forces in 2016 to create Panthea, establishing a technology centre in Berlin, Europe’s surtitle capital. Panthea also manages Theatre in Paris, an online theatre box office for international visitors in Paris, Europe’s most visited city.

Panthea runs high quality surtitling projects all across Europe and beyond, and develops innovative surtitling solutions, including the cloud-based surtitling software Spectitular and multilingual smartglass solutions.
