Classical Ballet Moscow
The Classical Ballet Moscow recently completed an extensive tour of Italy and Sicily featuring a beautifully emotive lighting design programmed on a Philips Strand Lighting NEO Lighting Control Console. The company performed The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty in cities including Florence, Milan and Palermo over 36 consecutive days. "I was really impressed by the flexibility of the NEO console," says Toma. "There are different ways to achieve what you want with it, which is ideal for both an experienced lighting designer and a beginner."
ARIA Resort & Casino New Year's Eve
The ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas features a technologically advanced convention and event operation that each year hosts an extravagant New Year’s Eve celebration. Ringing in 2016 for VIP and invited guests, event producers wanted to take the night to “Wonderland” winding down the proverbial rabbit hole so they reached out to PRG and Vickie Claiborne to accentuate the interaction between the audience and the performers, so she chose the small yet powerfully creative Showline SL 300 BEAM FX LED luminaire from Philips Entertainment.
German rock legends KARAT's recent acoustic tour featured an old school rock and roll floor package lighting design by LD Michael Kiefert programmed on the latest addition to the Philips Strand Lighting line of consoles, the 500ML. "When planning this tour, my main interest was to use a console with the ability to include local venue lights," explains Kiefert. "With the 500ML I was able to shrink the setup to one single universe, which meant I could use the second universe to accommodate the floor package and swap between the two with a simple finger swipe."
The Alley Theatre
The Alley Theatre recently underwent a $46.5 million renovation which included improvements to the Hubbard Theatre where Associate Director for Design Kevin Rigdon was also asked to serve as the Principal Designer for the project. Working with theatrical consultants Bill Connor & Associates as well as Philips Strand Lighting Authorized Dealer StageLight, Rigdon was tasked with creating a more intimate relationship between the audience and the actors on stage, and he did so using 68 Showline SL PAR 155 ZOOM LED luminaires.
Texas Thespian Festival
At the Texas Thespian Festival inside the Dallas Convention Center, Mark Batts, Batts AVL, created a lighting design for the 3-day event that included exciting performances, engaging speakers and theatrical workshops using Philips Strand Lighting NEO and 500ML lighting control consoles with Showline SL BEAM 300 FX, SL PUNCHLITE 220, SL BAR 640, and SL BAR 520 LED luminaires, plus Philips Selecon PLcyc1 LED luminaires.
