Robe Helps Celebrate Lang Lang's Birthday in TV Special
New York-based Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang recently celebrated his 30th birthday with a show at O2 World in Berlin, Germany, at the invitation of Telefónica Germany, complete with a lighting design by Nepomuk Lippl and Ben Miller from extes GmbH of Munich featuring Robe moving lights.
The concert was broadcast live, web streamed by TV channel ARTE, as well as enjoyed by a live audience of 5,000.
The Robe fixtures included ROBIN MMX Spots, ROBIN 1200 LEDWashes and ColorSpots, and ColorWash 1200E ATs, all positioned on 400m of trussing flown in the venue's roof.
The MMX's were rigged on a circular truss above Lang Lang's piano and used for pin-pointing of the artist as his set unfolded.
The show featured appearances by very special guests, including the Schlesweg-Holstein Festival Orchestra conducted by Jahja Ling, and US star Herbie Hangcock.
The lights were operated by Jurgen Lehmann and Jonny Huber, and the Robes were supplied by Limelight Veranstaltungstechnik GmbH from Gilching near Munich, with the MMXs coming from Dortmund-based Niclen.
