Music palace TivoliVredenburg

On July 3rd 2014, His Royal Highness King Willem Alexander officially opened the completely renewed Tivoli Vredenburg in Utrecht (The Netherlands). Tivoli Vredenburg is the result of merging two existing venues: Tivoli, one of the most famous stages for pop music in The Netherlands and Music Centre Vredenburg, known for its classical music performances.

Tivoli Vredenburg consists of 5 different concert stages, each with their own character. Four new concert halls have been constructed around the existing Main Auditorium. This main stage has also undergone a complete overhaul. New seats have been installed, a new lighting system has been provided, a foyer has been added and both in- and outdoor walls, ceiling and floors have either been renovated or completely renewed.

CLS partner Fairlight has teamed up with Utrecht based Airlight to supply all lighting and other stagecraft equipment for all venues within the new building. A challenging task, which was executed perfectly. For the Main Auditorium, the CLS Ultima was selected as house lighting, as this fixture has already proved itself in various theatres and auditoriums. The Ultima is an excellent fixture for this kind of application, due the unique dimming method and the very low UGR-

In addition, it is one of only a few fixtures available on the current market, that is actually able to match the results of traditional light sources on a height of 16 meters, but with a maximum power consumption of only 16,8 Watts. Lighting technicians of different theatres and auditoriums are most impressed with the possibilities that this particular fixture has to offer. In this setting, perfect dimming is a must and the Ultima amazes many.

Quotes like: ‘We didn’t even know that LED could be dimmed this perfectly’ and ‘This is the first LED fixture that convinces us that we can finally make the transition to LED without the need to comprise’ are statements that we often hear during demonstrations on location.
