Professional Lighting & Production - Spring 2018 - Page 16

16 PL&P C anadian superstar Celine Dion’s lighting designer, Yves Aucoin, has added Robe’s new MegaPointe multi-purpose moving light fixtures to the rig for her popular Celine show at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. Aucoin has worked with Dion since 1989, and Montreal-based lighting supplier Solotech has been her supplier since her shows first started carrying a production. Twelve MegaPointes are positioned on a bridge upstage of the band for beams, back key-lighting, and projecting and texturing onto the stage, as well as for aerial looks. Six MegaPointes along the front of the stage are used extensively when the front curtain is in and the space is smaller and more intimate. Concentrated on the apron, the four remaining fixtures are on four custom moving band risers from Tait.
