W-DMX™ on La Bohème at the Oslo Opera House
Director Stefan Herheim has taken on the challenge of staging what is arguably the biggest opera success of our times. On January 20, 2012, the Oslo Opera House raised the curtain on La Bohème in a modern-day interpretation of Puccini’s masterpiece and the most performed opera production ever in Norway.
The technical crew at the Oslo Opera House currently has a total of 24 W-DMX G4 units that they use on a regular basis. They are currently rotating the operas La Bohème and Giselle. Lighting Technician Audun Bull-Hanssen explains, “On La Bohème we use an F-1 G4 transmitter and 6 receivers for 5000W and 2500W HMI DMX dowser and scroller, plus it’s used for the star wall. For Giselle we use an F-1 G4 transmitter and 6 receivers for 2500W HMI. G4 has worked great so far and with no problems. The two performances alternate so it is very practical to use W-DMX! Cable free fun!”
Niclas Arvidsson, CEO of Wireless Solution said, “We’re so glad to hear how theatres and opera houses from Oslo and Sydney to Berlin have been using W-DMX. It’s making productions in these venues easy to rotate shows or help with complex scenery. The Oslo Opera house has been kind enough to share their success stories with others on our facebook page and we’re proud to be part of such a highly respected venue.”
