Robe lights up Puy Du Fou España

Supplier: Robe UK Ltd

More Robe UK Ltd details
El Sueño de Toledo was developed by Puy Du Fou president Nicolas de Villiers
Independent French theme park operator Puy Du Fou has revealed details of its latest outdoor
spectacular, El Sueño de Toledo (The Dream of Toledo) at Puy Du Fou España.

Billed as an 'epic nighttime immersive spectacular', El Sueño de Toledo is a one-hour journey through 1500 years of local history; from the reign of King Ricaredo in the 6th century and to the battle of Navas de Tolosa, the discovery of America and the introduction of the railway.

It features a cast of 185 actors and is staged outdoors in a 125m x 100m (410ft x 328ft) performance space with an elaborately-designed set including several permanent buildings and a large lake. A host of special effects, as well as a lighting collage and projection-mapped scenery complete the experience.

The show was developed by Puy Du Fou president Nicolas de Villiers, while Koert Vermeulen, principal designer at ACTLD, created the lighting concept.

Due to the site's topography, an overhead sky rig was impossible, instead, lights were positioned around the sides and front of the performance area. Vermeulen opted for 75 BMFL WashBeams and 20 MegaPointe moving lights from Robe Lighting, a lighting manufacturer based in the Czech Republic, due to their throw distances of 40m to 100m.

Koert Vermeulen, founder and principal designer at ACTLD, said: "The show's essence was similar to some of those we have created in the French park, so some of the base principles and style needed to reflect a continuity, but its a fresh, new and completely unique dramatic tour de force which needed a lot of attention to detail."
