TAIT has upgraded the automation facilities of this unique opera house to ensure that future generations of creatives can continue to advance the operatic artform. This has included fitting a 69-bar automated flying system into a very limited grid space alongside lighting bridges and point hoists.

Working in close partnership, TAIT and Glyndebourne have successfully completed the first phases of the extensive automation upgrade, ensuring that, in its 90th anniversary year, this unique theatre has facilities that fuel further creative potential for operatic performance.

The collaboration included the development of new iQ software features, design of bespoke lighting bridges and the upgrade of the counterweight flying system to provide fully powered flying, with reconfigurable point hoists.

Glyndebourne now boasts an holistic automation system that delivers new capabilities and makes repertory performance smoother, including new efficiencies achieved by technical cross-department integration. A unified control system for all automation: above, below and on the stage.
