When Opera Grand Rapids contacted KBOgroup and asked if we could turn their rehearsal hall into a performance space, we answered, “Of course!”
Obstacles were abundant. The power was not robust, the roof support system was unknown, acoustics were poor, oh, and, no seating. In two weeks, we finished engineering studies and designed motor and truss systems, specified an all LED low power lighting system, and a full sound reinforcement system, all necessary for production of the Opera Maria de Bueno Aires. We arranged for temporary seating to be donated by a locally-based global office furniture manufacturer. Our production partner, GR Shop, designed the settings, and “Maria” came to life, in a formerly empty space. Our long history of work in both, theatre and corporate events, contributed to our ability to locate the most suitable equipment to make the project successful. And, we accomplished that on budget.
