The impressive mixture of horse show and acrobatics was thematically embedded in a nice, romantic story. Altogether, 45 horses starred on the specially created stage, captivating audiences with their charm. To reinforce the story, the entire Apassionata manÃ¨ge was continuously bathed in different colored lighting, giving extra depth to this equestrian theatre.
Schletter has been a freelance lighting designer and operator for many years and is familiar with the impression range of fixtures from productions like the Bambi-Award or the German Film-Award, where as a member of Jerry Appelt's technical team he was responsible for the effects lighting. Henning had already used the Ypoc 700 previously in various different shows. “The first time I used the Ypoc it was for a TV production at the Europapark in Rust. For Apassionata these lamps became our workhorses, offering everything you would expect from a first class fixture,” he said.
The main technical service provider for the project was PRG Hamburg, who supervised the light, acoustic, video and staging elements of the production.
