Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts
To support the enveloping orchestra sound of Canada’s largest producer of opera, Engineering Harmonics designed a discreet performance sound system. The system also transfers the off-stage chorus vocals out into the front-of-house, and adds the capability to bring sound design into the 21st Century world of opera.
The $181 million, 2,010-seat theatre is home to the Canadian Opera Company and the National Ballet of Canada.
Performance sound, video and communications systems consulting, design, tender, contract administration and commissioning.
In contemporary opera performance, a performance sound system is often required to expand the artistic scope. Supporting video and communications systems and extensive infrastructure are integrated into the design, allowing three complete productions to play in repertory.
We retained Engineering Harmonics because we respect them and we respect the quality of their work—both the results they had obtained on their previous projects and the process they employed in achieving those results.
The newly installed system has made an incredible difference in terms of coverage, power and fidelity. It has been well received by both touring sound engineers and audience members alike. The quality of the equipment and install have been rock solid for us.
Within an hour they knew where my knowledge stopped and where theirs had to start — and they were very, very gracious about it, even though they play on the world stage. They brought world-class knowledge and home-town service to the project.
