Alchemy 5: new washes for the Bolshoi theatre

Following the building renovation completed in 2012, the Bolshoi theater in Moscow continues the innovation process by adding new equipment to their stage.

In 2020 a massive investment has been performed to update the lighting fixtures: the Bolshoi theater is now pioneering the market with the most innovative technologies and aims at confirming to be one of the best-equipped theaters in the world. The lighting plot selection was based on the latest innovations in terms of quality and purity of light.

Alchemy 5 has been included in the ambitious lighting project.
The impressive investment on this fresnel moving head, one of the most appreciated innovations currently in the market, is certainly due to the uncomparable options that it can offer.
Alchemy is a new generation moving head that combines a 250 mm diameter fresnel lens with a 6-chip LED source, which can generate a great white light quality and an extended color palette with a wide range of pastel and warm shades.
In addition, the innovative linear CCT, correction filters and gel emulations make it extremely easy to use when creating colors for the perfect skin highlight.

Denis Velikzhanin, IMLIGHT Brand Manager for DTS expressed his enthusiasm for this project:

The Bolshoi Theater is a symbol of Russia, the main stage of the country, a world famous icon. Tours of the Bolshoi Theater are inevitably sold out in any city in the world. The Bolshoi Theater is a sign of quality, innovation and advanced technology. If the Bolshoi Theater recognized the magic of light of Alchemy 5, then this is the highest rating for the DTS engineers.
I find that Alchemy must be included in any theater equipment and I am thrilled that the first-class theater of our country has confirmed this thought. We are confident that this is just the first step in a long journey that will bring Alchemy’s quality of light throughout the theaters in the country.”
