Rivage at Ruhrtriennale

The Ruhrtriennale international festival brings music, dance, theatre, performance and other arts together in the former industrial buildings of Germany’s Ruhr region. The festival’s focal point is the Jahrhunderthalle, a former boiler house whose acoustics provide many challenges for audio engineers. This year, a Yamaha Rivage PM10 console helped to tame the sound for a production of the opera Alceste.

Jahrhunderthalle is a unique venue. Built in 1902 as a temporary exhibition venue in Dusseldorf, the following year it was relocated to the Krupp site and converted to generate power for the steelworks. In 1991, 20 years after the works closed, the unrestored building was returned to entertainment use. Since 2003 it has been the main stage complex for the Ruhrtriennale.
