Birmingham Royal Ballet’s fabulous production of The Nutcracker had its arena premiere at the O2 in Greenwich on Boxing Day 2011. In order to present this beautiful show in its full beauty, it was necessary to reproduce a full theatre fly system from rigging. The results were universally celebrated as breathtaking.
Abu Dhabi hosted the main official celebration for the 40th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates. Ours was a huge stadium gig at Zayed Sports City, capacity 40,000 for a one-off spectacular. And it was spectacular!
Some highlights of the show on youtube (starts with military marchpast, and moves onto the main part of the show at around 50 seconds)
Celebrating 25 years(!) of Phantom of the Opera, we staged a full production in the Royal Albert Hall (click on the photo for a clip, it’s worth it). As the RAH has no proscenium, we built an entire proscenium stage with fake boxes (all the boxes in the pic are actually scaff faced with scenic elements, keyed into the normal Albert boxes invisibly). 3 showings, with a live telecast to cinemas worldwide, this was the fastest selling show the RAH has ever hosted. Absolutely spectacular.
