Latvian National Opera and Ballet

The LNOB select only reliable equipment – the new cyc lights with state-of-the-art LED technology  


February 2019

The Latvian National Opera and Ballet has been operating in Riga since 1923, and today, during a single season, it shows around 200 performances, several symphonic and chamber music concerts and an average of six new performances, offering a balance between classical, contemporary and traditional forms of expression for lovers of high-quality artistic performance.

In order to provide a modern material and technical base for the diverse repertoire of the Latvian National Opera and Ballet, the arsenal of stage lights is gradually improved and this year is no exception. It is gratifying that once again the choice was decided on the production of the Clay Paky group. This time, from the wide assortment, the opera house favoured ADB Stagelight Klemantis AS 1000 spotlights, tailored specifically to the needs of opera and theatre stages.

“Klemantis was the only backdrop lighting solution which fit our quite large opera stage,” says Ainārs Kabucis, Head of the Lighting Department.  He notes that the Latvian National Opera and Ballet already has Claypaky Scenius Profile, A.leda B-EYE K20 and Alpha Profile 700 fixtures in its inventory.  “We’ve been very satisfied with the lights and the quality of the service and support behind them,” he adds.

The new ADB Klemantis is an asymmetric cyclight based on a six-colour LED module, which uses cutting-edge HCR (High Colour Rendering) LED technology to deliver a wide selection of colours from bold hues to pastel shades. Thanks to an innovative algorithm, the unit capable of achieving a stable CRI of over 97, as well as an impressive tunable white light ranging from 2500K to 8000K. Its light output is enhanced by an innovative optical system, which enables the Klemantis to generate a uniform light with excellent diffusion and perfectly blended colours.

The Klemantis units form a family of fixtures which are designed to be used in linear arrays. The Klemantis AS1000 is fitted with 16 multi-source LED. They can be used horizontally, vertically, laid on the floor, or hung from above on a bar.
