Sydney Opera House

Sydney Festival 2007 has now come and gone and this year Butlers Hire and Pipeline Rigging helped Layher play its part in the main Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House. The creators of Stomp put together an orchestra of Lost and Found instruments and specified Layher All-round for their four tiered stage and surrounding towers.

Lost and Found comprised of 50 performers playing instruments like a bed turned into a double bass, rubbish chute drums, a string section made from saws and water bottle xylophones. One challenge we faced was keeping a 7m high free standing run from moving when 5 swinging trapeze artists leapt from it to play suspended tubes in the middle of the Concert Hall.

The scaffold couldn't move an inch as any change in distance to the suspended tubes would change the tempo of the piece. This wasn't a problem for the Butler and Pipeline boys, it didn't move a millimeter.

At the end of opening night the Opera House Director commented that this was the best stage set up he had seen in the Concert Hall for as long as he can remember. Once again Layher hit all the right chords.

Thanks to Clinton from Pipeline and David from Butlers for the photo.
