H i s t o r y

In 1992 Norbert Zepter finished his studies with 'summa cum laude' at 'Technische Fachhochschule, Berlin' (University of Applied Sciences), as a specific mechanical engineer for theatre and event- technology.

After university, in 1992, one of his first steps into business was planning and doing light and sound at international car shows for NISSAN in fairs at Birmingham, Amsterdam and Paris. NISSAN won the first price for the best presentation twice. From 1993 to 1994 Norbert Zepter went back to theatres as a "Buehnenmeister", which means technical supervisor of staff on stage. Just to mention it, Norbert Zepter worked at "Theater Schaubuehne, Berlin", together with well-known director Peter Stein, when he made his studies from 1988 to 1992. In the eighties he designed and performed shows in the field of rock- music.

But let us come back to the more present part of Norbert Zepter's curriculum vitae:
In 1994 he started his successful career as a project manager for the most established deliverers in theatrical industry. During that time quite a number of theatres and three big opera houses crossed Norbert Zepter's path:. Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London, Opéra Garnier Paris, and New Opera House Moscow opened Norbert Zepter’s mind on his long way to the top. From 1997 to 1999 he learned to understand all those indispensable steps of development and final installation of the technical equipment in financial and engineering aspects, which  is needed to build up a new venue, theatre or multipurpose hall.

In 1999
ZEPTER Entertainment Engineering (ZEE) was founded by Norbert Zepter. Since that time the engineering company ZEE has been doing business with well-satisfied clients all over Europe, Asia and North America. After two years of exclusive working as a development engineering company for GALA, based in Montréal, Canada, Mr. Zepter decided to come back to Germany and continue his work as an independent company.
He split his companies into two separate firms:
has been from then on been part of music production.
After 2002 ZEE opened the fruitful field of doing organizing and producing event and entertainment business for modern music and broadcasting companies.
has concentrated on the business of high quality and fundamental  know-how, which  is needed for building up theatrical machineries for theatres and opera houses.
In the meantime ZTE (www.theater-engineering) has been doing design and consulting on high-end machinery, light and sound equipment for venues, multipurpose halls and various theatres and opera houses.
