Blackburn, UK, based lighting rental company HSL supplied all stage lighting equipment and crew to the acclaimed Israeli Opera production of Verdi’s Nabucco, staged at a new purpose-built open air site in the middle of the desert on the World Heritage site of Masada Mountain …. by the Dead Sea in Israel.
HSL was brought onboard by Jerusalem and Tel Aviv based Stage Design, who supplied all the technical infrastructure for the high profile 6 day event, and built most of the site. It was the first time the two companies had collaborated, which happened after HSL came highly recommended by several contacts.
HSL’s project manager Mike Oates says, “We were delighted to win the contract. Working with the Stage Design team has been a real pleasure.
