Glyndebourne Opera House installs Selecon Pacifics
The world famous Glyndebourne Opera House in East Sussex, England, recently installed 16 of Selecon’s 12-28 Pacific Zoomspots (supplied by Selecon dealers Stage Electrics of Bristol) in preparation for their 2002 Festival that started on 18 May.

The opera house lighting team, led by lighting manager Keith Benson, has installed them in the advance bridge position in the main opera house. "We chose Selecon after researching a number of similar spots on the market. The Pacific’s build quality and the light it produces were particularly impressive," said Benson. "The light is crisp, white and relatively distortion free." Despite being a luminaire only 24" long, the Pacific delivers a cool beam of light with a range of 12-28 degrees. "It’s handy having those extra degrees - it can make all the difference," Benson concluded. The 2002 Festival opened with a performance of Don Giovanni and continues throughout the summer with a busy programme of operas, ending with Albert Herring on 25 August.
