The year of 2017 started big for PRG with the representation of the prestigious ballet ‘The IX Symphony’ of Maurice Béjart at Forest National, from the 6th till the 8th of January. More than 200 artists: ballet dancers, singers and musicians interpreted the masterpiece of Beethoven, choreographed by Maurice Béjart, Today, 50 years later, Gil Roman, the successor to former Artistic Director of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne, Maurice Béjart, brings new life to this masterpiece.
PRG supported the show with sound and lighting technology. The clients, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne and Music Hall, wanted to recreate the lighting design of 1964. The PRG team installed mostly conventional lighting on a 600m long structure above the central stage. In terms of sound, 72 Adamson S10 speakers were installed, as well as multiple little sources in delay, out-fill, front-fill and returns.
