Oz arrives at New National Theatre


The New National Theatre, Tokyo (NNTT) has replaced source followspots with Oz 600W LED fixtures from Robert Juliat as part of a recent lighting upgrade. The 7–14° LED followspots were supplied by Robert Juliat distributor, Sogo Butai.

The Oz fixtures were acquired for use in the NNTT’s small Pit Theatre, with the intention of relocating them to the larger spaces of the Playhouse and Opera Palace when needed. ‘Because of its silent operation, Oz is extremely suitable for the open space within the smaller Pit Theatre,’ explained Takehito Suzuki, from the NNTT’s technical department for lighting. ‘In venues like those of the New National Theatre, where many theatrical shows and contemporary dance performances are presented, we found Oz is the best followspot for lighting the performers at every distance.’

Suzuki added that the Top Control option available for the Oz followspots, which provides control of the dimming and iris from the top of the fixture, also played a part in the NNTT’s decision to purchase the Robert Juliat lights. ‘I find it so finely designed that the operation is a pleasure,’ he said. ‘I’m impressed by the minimum size of the iris shutter as well; the accuracy of the iris cassette is really incredible – it is great to see how RJ can make a spot so tiny that it seems like a hole pierced by a needle.’
