The event was lit up by186 DTS projectors (RAPTOR, NRG 1401, BRICK, KATANA, and WONDER).

“The atmosphere of the Greek Theater of Taormina was beautiful” – said Nicola Mongi, lighting project manager – “DTS projectors integrated well with that unique place; in addition to their brightness and color quality, the choice of DTS projectors was perfect because they are all very compact and lightweight, the right fit for the stage space – 2300 years old – that is obviously to be treated with the utmost care and does not allow for cumbersome installations.

I am really happy with the result. The audience and the production were enthusiastic about the show.”

Lighting Director Hal Deiter stated, “I was very happy with how this event turned out in the end. The DTS fixtures were powerfully bright with saturated colors as well as nice pastels. To be able to light a show in this particular venue was certainly a great experience.”
