Roma Musical Theatre

Project type:

Location:

Since 2000, LTT has been systematically delivering lighting stock and control equipment for the acclaimed Roma Musical Theatre in Warsaw.

The Roma Theatre, previously known as the Warsaw Operetta, is located on 49 Nowogrodzka St. in Warsaw. Its main stage has an auditorium for ca. 1000 guests; in the 2009/2010 season another, smaller stage, the Nova Stage, was opened. The Theatre is known for musical productions such as "Les Misérables", "Miss Saigon", "Grease", "Cats", "Dance of the Vampires", "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Mr. Kleks' Academy".

Lighting and light control system

LTT has been providing the Roma Theatre with lighting and control equipment since one of the Theatre's early productions, "Miss Saigon". We have delivered lighting consoles - first Compulite Micron, later Compulite Vector Blue and Vector Orange. We replaced the dimmer system with modern Ethernet/DMX-controlled dimmers — Compulite CompuDim 2000. Thanks to internet communication, it is now possible to monitor the state of the dimmers from the lighting control room.

LTT has also been delivering stage lights, both classic and moving heads. The Theatre uses, among other stock, Selecon Pacific 23-50° and 14-35° lights and asymmetric Selecon Lui CYC Ground luminaires. Compulite Whisper color changers and Sunset dowsers are also installed.

The theatre ordered a number of Martin moving heads, such as MAC 2000 and MAC 2000 Performance models.

Laser

The Roma Theater uses a Marting RGB Laser 1.6 diode laser provided by LTT. The device has been used, among athers, in the production of "Mr. Kleks' Academy". This notably compact device emits light of very high brightness and allows any beam color to be achieved. The laser is controlled by DMX and ILDA, which makes it possible to fully synchronise with the light show. Animation playback and editing software has also been provided along with the laser itself.

Smoke generators

Smoke created by the Theatre's 4 Glaciator generators featured prominently in "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Les Misérables". Thanks to the machines' cooling device, they produce heavy smoke that crawls near the floor, creating moody scenes.
