Warsaw’s Grand Theatre – National Opera

Completely reconstructed after the World War II, Warsaw’s Grand Theatre – National Opera is one of the largest theatres in Europe. Matching the expectations of itsadiscerning audience, the venue recently engaged M.Ostrowski Company for an audio upgrade.

The project revolved around the theatre’s primary performance space – the 1,800-plus capacity Stanisław Moniuszko Auditorium, which is used for a blend of opera, ballet and theatre performances. The new system needed to be able to offer subtle, highly directive reinforcement for orchestral music and announcements, and after a competitive tender process, M.Ostrowski Company turned to Renkus-Heinz and the Iconyx range of Digitally Steerable Column Arrays to provide the solution.

Stanisław Moniuszko AuditoriumDesigned for challenging acoustical environments, Iconyx combines Renkus-Heinz’s beam steering with high intelligibility and full-range musicality, within enclosures that blend in with their environment.

The Grand Theatre – National Opera is now served by two IC32 speakers, with 32 x 4-inch coaxial transducers (each with three HF tweeters), 16 amplifier and DSP channels, and beam control effective to 200Hz.

The configuration also includes two IC16 speakers – with 16 4-inch coaxial transducers (each with three HF tweeters), eight amplifier and DSP channels, and beam control effective down to 200Hz, plus DR-18-2R subs to handle the low frequencies.

‘What we have here with this Iconyx system is a highly effective PA that also blends unobtrusively into the venue’s historic and distinctive interiors,’ says Technical Director, Łukasz Toboła. ‘The project was completed to schedule and has met with a strongly positive reaction from both venue personnel and patrons.’
