Philips Lighting Moves Opera Sanxay To New Heights
Philips Lighting has announced that it has worked closely with Opera Sanxay to introduce the first-ever moving light rig for the celebrated Soirées Lyrique de Sanxay opera festival, staged from 10-14 August.
The lighting rig for this year’s production combined traditional and LED light sources. Moving lights, including Philips VL4000 Spots and VL6000 Beams, plus LEDbased Philips VLZ Wash and Philips Showline SL BEAM 300 FX luminaires, were used alongside fixed units. Control
was provided by the latest Philips Strand Lighting NEO system.
Lighting designer Nevio Cavina also enjoyed comprehensive on-site support and programming assistance from Philips Entertainment’s Bobby Harrell and Gregg Brooks. Further design options were presented by the Philips SL Bar 720 ZT, which Cavina used to line the octagonal, overhead centerpiece of Keiko Shiraishi’s set design. The color-changing, tilting bars brought an important additional movement to the automated set-piece, as well as giving
Cavina further possibilities for lighting both the set and performers.
