Stora Teatern, Sweden Stora Teatern in Göteborg, Sweden was originally opened in 1859. This spectacular neo-renaissance building was designed by Carl Malberg and staged opera, operetta and musical productions from 1920 to 1994. Now run by the City, it stages up to three shows each week and also accommodates longer running touring productions lasting several weeks. Chief Lighting Technician Joel Karlberg decided it was time to have a major technical upgrade to the lighting rig. Specifically Karlberg wanted a flexible and powerful wash fixture, easily portable and movable around the space which could be utilised for all the shows. Ten Robin 800 LEDWashers were chosen- the first off Robe’s new production line in the Czech Republic.


As soon as the new LEDWash 800s


were delivered to Stora Teatern, they went straight into action on the main stage for three episodes of the Swedish Television’s “En Helkväll med …” (An Evening With) series. They featured three leading Swedish artists– the singer Lena Philipsson; exceptionally popular playwright, novelist, comedian and screenwriter Jonas Gardell (also 2012’s current Swede of the Year, Stockholmare of the Year and Gay of the Year) and the country singer Jill Johnson. The main stage can now be used in two


configurations. First is the conventional end-on set up, and then secondly with the addition of a raised platform, a customised traverse format allows performers to be viewed from both sides both front and back of the theatre. Karlberg researched in great depth and sought opinions when looking into the upgrade and Robe came highly recommended by several people which included a colleague working in a theatre in southern Sweden and was extremely satisfied with the LEDWash 600’s and MMX Spots. “I think they are a good solid investment,” concludes Karlberg, adding that the exemplary and very efficient service they receive from Bellalite was also “A crucial factor” in their choice of moving light.
