Cirque du Soleil Theatre for La Nouba
Orlando, FL 1997
Cirque du Soleil has long been known for the immersive experience they provide audiences. In developing this show, however, the troupe created a new challenge for themselves, spreading orchestra members spread four locations throughout the theatre.This in turn created a need for a monitoring system as robust, complex and individualized as the front-of-the-house sound.
Pro Sound engineers designed, developed and installed both systems. Using advanced space-mapping technology to audibly locate on-stage sounds for each individual audience member, they used sound to draw audiences into the action on stage.
The team then turned their attention to the performers themselves, developing backstage monitoring and a complex orchestra monitoring system that allowed musicians to individualize the sound they heard – down to the minute details. Engineers even installed bass speakers by musician’s legs so they could literally feel the pulse of the music happening around them and offer that much more to their performance.
