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.

Phantom of the Opera 25th Anniversary at the Royal Albert Hall

October 22nd, 2011

Screengrab of the official DVD for Phantom 25th showCelebrating 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.
