Clear Communications For Cirque Du Soleil's Paramour

Cirque du Soleil made its Broadway debut with Paramour, a musical spectacular directed by Philippe Decouflé, which premiered at the Lyric Theatre last May and runs into April 2017. The production features sets by Jean Rabasse, costumes by Philippe Guillotel, lighting by Patrice Besombes, projection design by Olivier Simola and Christophe Waksmann, and sound design by John Shivers

In order to tech and run the show, Masque Sound provided Clear-Com's HelixNet and FreeSpeak II system. Three HelixNet main stations with 20+ HRM headsets and 10+ beltpacks helped make immediate changes across crew communications during the technical build. The FreeSpeak II system, including 15 wireless users and 10 transceiver antennas, support wireless communication for the crew throughout the theatre house and ancillary areas, such as wardrobe, dressing rooms, and management offices.

Hear what the biggest production challenges were from the designers themselves.
