Robe DL7S Profiles installed at National Theatre in Warsaw
The Teatr Narodowy (National Theatre) in Warsaw, Poland, has invested in a total of 40 x Robe DL7S Profile moving lights which are part of a lighting upgrade to replace over 100 halogens and gel-scrollers in their rig with new LED light sources, a graduated process taking place across all three of the theatre’s performance spaces.
In addition to modernising their house lighting systems - including some previous moving lights that had been in place for nearly twenty years - they were essentially looking for quieter fixtures, states head of lighting Zbigniew Szulim. They also wanted a luminaire that could replicate the effect of halogen lamps.
The National Theatre Warsaw, one of five in Poland, each associated with a major city, stages nearly 500 shows a year across all its stages - Boguslawski Hall (Big Hall), the stage at Wierzbowa (Small Hall) and the Studio Stage - a mix of own produced shows and those received from other companies.
The capacities of the Small Hall and the Studio are 120 and 100 respectively, and in these rooms, the audience is sitting very close to the lights, so having less ambient noise coming from the fixtures is a bonus for those watching.
Zbigniew Szulim works with a lighting crew of 10 across all of the stages. They have had some Robe in the building prior to this latest acquisition - six DL4S Profiles and 18 x MMX Blades - on the large Boguslawski Hall stage and in the Studio. As with these, the DL7S Profiles’s were delivered by Robe’s Polish distributor Prolight.
