The Grand Opera Chair by RATstands is the world’s first and only musicians chair that can be adjusted electronically. There is no longer the need to stand up and adjust the chair manually. With the Grand Opera Chair musicians can adjust the seat’s height, roll, seat angle, and back angle with the touch of a button.

The Grand Opera Chair has an incredible range of adjustment which allows it to accommodate the needs of every musician from a cellist to a flutist. A digital screen displays the chairs position as a ‘pin’ code which is unique to each individual musician. Simply remember the ‘pin’ code on the screen to easily adjust the chairs settings to your optimal playing position when you next take a seat. The chair is powered by a re-chargeable li-ion battery which slots into the side of the chair. The digital screen also displays the battery status and a fully charged battery will potentially last for months depending on usage.

The chair has been expertly designed, using our 46+ years of experience, to offer better comfort and flexibility, for longer periods of playing time, than other chairs on the market. Our products have been developed and inspired by musicians, which ensures our chairs provide enhanced support and comfort specifically for the needs of orchestral musicians.

The chair’s narrow back provides support where it is needed without hindering the musician’s arms, shoulders, and rib cage. The backrest provides support in the upper lumbar region which encourages an upright posture, whilst the horizontal seat with downturned front edges enables the musician to keep their feet flat on the floor for improved blood circulation. High quality foam ensures firm but comfortable support for hours on end.

The Grand Opera Chair’s premium and elegant appearance makes it ideal for use in any venue, from opera houses to recording studios. The top-grade steel frame is coated with a black anti-scratch powder coat for maximum durability and a sleek finish. The seat and backrest are manufactured from firm foam and upholstered with high quality, breathable, and flame-retardant fabric. Our standard charcoal fabric is sophisticated and minimal, and we offer a range of upholstery colours are available for a custom look.

Unlike other orchestra chairs, the Opera Chairs can be vertically stacked for compact storage. The Opera Chair Trolley (301Q80) and Dolly (301Q81) are available to purchase separately for options to store and transport the chairs. The chairs can easily be manoeuvred by a single person, and different variations of the Opera Chair and Grand Opera Chairs can be mixed in the same stack.

All the chairs in the RATstands Professional Range are designed, manufactured, and hand finished in the UK. They are the preferred choice for orchestras, schools, recording studios and musicians all over the world and are built to last for many years.
