Operatic Opulence


The famous Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Germany, which combines both the Opera Düsseldorf and Theater Duisburg now have PR Lighting’s PR 5000 Framing fixtures for the Autumn season opera productions. They were ordered from Focon Showtechnic, PR Lighting’s German distributors, and they chose the PR-5000 Framing fixtures as they offered the best quality to price ratio, which they compared with leading professional models in terms of performance.


Specified by the lighting and video


director, Volker Weinhart, the fixtures are driven by 1500W discharge lamp, and will also form part of the theatre’s opera and ballet touring inventory. They will also be used on all productions across the world, 300 days of the year. The Opera and Ballet company is one of the largest in Europe and they have 870 employees which include 220 musicians in their two symphony orchestras.


Deutsche Oper am Rhein initially deployed a small number of heads, and in view of the outstanding results, now plans to increase their inventory of the Chinese manufacturer’s automated fixture. “The PR-5000’s framing effect is being used specifically for classical theatre — to place some of the actors or scenery in high power focus,” explains Focon’s Jens

Opera Germany invests in PR lighting framing spots. Ottenhus.


“The Opera technicians have told us that the PR-5000 Framing has been performing extremely impressively, with easy handling, and offering a large range of functions. In particular they mentioned the high output, big zoom, sharp projection and perfect framing features. It is also articulate and extremely easy to programme.” Fully featured, and forming part of the popular PR-5000 series, the framing module contains four framing blades,


offering square, prism, triangle and so on in different shapes and sizes. While each blade can be shaped individually, the entire image framing module can rotate at 90° giving artistic directors a myriad of options.
