The Liaoning Ballet has taken delivery of 40 ADB Klemantis AS1000 LED cyclorama lights, half of them for fixed installation for the Liaoning Ballet and half for the ballet company’s worldwide touring performances of “Hua Mulan.”
The Liaoning Ballet is one of the most famous ballet companies in China. It is known for producing new Chinese cultural works and performing well-known ballet classics. The story of a powerful female general in Chinese history, “Hua Mulan” has had many incarnations, including a Disney animated film. The Liaoning Ballet’s new production interprets the iconic tale through modern ballet choreography and music. It is now touring globally.
Lighting Programmer Ma Liang from the Liaoning Ballet chose the new Klemantis cyc lights and 40 ADB Warp 12º-30º 800W Zoom Profile spotlights, which were previously purchased by the Centre, for the production. Sergey Martynov is Hua Mulan’s Lighting Designer.
Used to create light and shadow designs for “Hua Mulan,” “Klemantis has high light efficiency, less light attenuation and a uniform field,” says Ma Liang. “They offer a good light projection angle and also save stage space.”
The Warp 800W Profiles offer “great color temperature and high brightness,” Ma Liang adds. “It’s easy to change focus with the Profiles, and the lamp body zoom system accessories are durable and not easily damaged during transport.”
Ma Liang reports that both fixtures deliver “amazing and wonderful” performances for “Hua Mulan.”
Alfonso Zarate Takano is ADB’s Regional Sales Manager for APAC. He worked with ADB partner ACE (Advanced Communication Equipment [International] Co. Ltd.) to arrange product demos at the Centre prior to purchase.
