Stage One ensures the show goes on

The holding of full-scale productions of the successful musical The Phantom of the Opera in Adelaide and Taipei has been made possible thanks to the use of the Mother Grid portable fly tower supplied by Stage One. The project reveals how companies can maintain event production values despite the restrictions of particular venues.

Without Stage One’s fly tower, supplied to the Really Useful Group, the cities of Adelaide and Taipei wouldn’t have been able to play host to a production of this size.

Following last year’s successful first outing of Stage One’s Mother Grid, for a production of Disney’s The Lion King, the grid was reconfigured at the company’s Australian workshop in Sydney to meet the demanding requirements of The Phantom of the Opera.

It was then transported to Adelaide, where it was installed for 24 performances, before being shipped to Taipei for a further 20 performances, completing the run at the end of July 2009.

“The Phantom of the Opera was always going to be a challenge, with its multitude of traditional flying scenery and the famous Chandelier ‘crash’, but working with Stage One and their Qmotion® control system meant that this challenge was met seamlessly,” said the musical’s technical director Richard Martin.

Although this case focuses around a musical production, it shows how the right technical assistance can help global corporate events deliver the required ‘wow’ factor, and overcome any issues with venues or locations.
