The theatre's lighting technical manager, Milton Arnold, consulted UK-based LD Nick Jevons - who has worked at the venue on a number of previous occasions - before moving ahead with the purchase.
According to Arnold, Avolites has a "very strong presence in Singapore. So many of the operators are familiar with the Pearl, including my staff in the lighting department and our regular freelancers, so that was another solid reason for going with Avo."
Senior lighting technician Christopher Das (pictured) utilised one of the Pearl Expert consoles during this year's Mosaic Music Festival with a lighting rig that included six High End Systems X-Spots, eight Studio Beams, six Studio Color moving lights, 24 PARs and four ground-rows for the backdrop. Das praised the user-friendliness and control abilities of the new console: "It offers a massive amount of control. One of the best things is being able to run moving lights and generics separately off the two rollers."
