QolorFLEX 5x8A Dimmers for 100,000 Fairy Lights at a Winter Wedding at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Lake Tahoe, California
"I chose City Theatrical because of your reputation for quality, reliability and customer service. This installation was for a once in a lifetime event, and I didn’t want to leave anything to chance. We chose City Theatrical and QolorFLEX 5x8A Dimmers because we felt they are the Rolls Royce of our industry - the best and most reliable option available."
- John Woods, Principal Lighting and Audio Visual Specialist, Enhanced Lighting
Enhanced Lighting and Audio Visual developed a "fairy light" lighting concept for an epic wedding ceremony at The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe, California - in the middle of a snowstorm. They sought a dimming control solution that could be mounted to an overhead rig with over 100,000 hanging LED lights, and run seamlessly for over 24-hours using individual power supplies, despite extreme winter temperatures. The lighting team used 190 QolorFLEX® 5x8A Dimmers to meet their goals.
QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB and QolorFLEX 5x8A Dimmers in Das Rheingold’s Rainbow Bridge, presented at the Lobero Theatre produced by Opera Santa Barbara
Das Rheingold was the first opera to re-open to a live audience in California’s Central Coast region.
Everyone involved in the production process was very excited and anxious to flex our muscles again. I was not entirely
sure if all my design and production reflexes would respond, but just like riding a bicycle, we stepped right into our roles
with enthusiasm. Crystal Manich, the show’s director, and I decided to stage the orchestra in view, with the singers, as a
celebration of this reunion with the audience. This proved to be immensely cathartic, especially as the lighting engulfed the
whole theater to form Das Rheingold’s climactic Rainbow Bridge.
QolorFLEX NuNeon was essential in the realization of this design. Since the Orchestra was staged on a series
of risers, I decided to use QolorFLEX NuNeon to define and frame the negative space while bringing focus to the stage
through a series of concentric portals. The lack of elaborate scenery was easily circumvented by the striking intensity, dynamic response, and color accuracy of QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB
which, with the help of a well designed LED lighting system, allowed
us to create rich visual and emotional landscapes. QolorFLEX
NuNeon’s ease of installation allowed us to keep our load-in to
one day, with two days of prep. It was a huge advantage for this
Light Boxes and Podium Lighting at the Democratic National Convention 2020 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
“We chose the QolorFLEX 12v RGBCW
LED Tape for the light boxes because
it would work with our existing 12v
custom dimmer assemblies and, more
importantly, we had the confidence that
it would be flicker-free and look great on

QolorFLEX® LED Tape, RGBA, QolorFLEX 5x8A Dimmers, QolorFLEX NuNeon, WW and CW, and QolorFLEX 24x3A Dimmers at Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights at Yale University in New Haven, CT
As a production about light, the creative team sought
to communicate light in different ways - as infinite and
expansive, harsh when created by Doctor Faustus, and
tangible and welcoming when “Marguerite Ida and Helena
Annabel” finds herself in control in Act II.
Yale senior undergraduate student and lighting designer
for the production Ryan Seffinger drafted wall-sized LED
lightboxes to represent the more abstract design concept, in
a style reminiscent of light installations by American artists
James Turrell and Dan Flavin. To make these LED lightboxes
come to life with amber colored light and mobility, he needed
an LED tape solution that was bright, dimmable, and flexible.
To create tangible-looking light, he sought a bright white LED
linear lighting solution that could be folded easy into shapes.
City Theatrical’s QolorFLEX RGBA LED Tape controlled
by QolorFLEX 5x8A Dimmers was selected for the
lightboxes, setting the abstract space for each scene
by changing orientation and color. QolorFLEX NuNeon,
controlled by QolorFLEX 24x3A Dimmers to create a
pulsing effect, was folded into rounded rectangles and
suspended midair to create a bold, linear look.

the back wall, behind the performers on stage. We wanted a bright neon sign that could change color, and be able to tour with the show. QolorFLEX NuNeon gives us what we wanted and needed – something bright, and colorful, with the flexibility and durability to last through our upcoming tour. We can have the sign stand out, or recede, based on similar or contrasting light color of the back wall. It is super bright, and really pops when we want it to. It gives us many layers of options.

“[QolorFLEX NuNeon] provided a
punctuated ‘zing’ of light on areas we
wanted to accent. [QolorFLEX 5-in-1

QolorFLEX NuNeon, Dimmers and Custom Manufacturing at Lindemann Performing Arts Center at Brown University
“City Theatrical offered a perfect marriage of high quality LED and custom metal work needed for this installation at Brown University. The QolorFLEX NuNeon linear LED met the requirements for the running lights on the technical galleries. We needed a custom, heavy duty bracket to protect the LED, shield it from the audience, and simplify the installation. City Theatrical executed our design with a custom extrusion perfectly suited for the job.”
- Steve Rust, ASTC LC ETCP-CEE, Associate, Theatre Projects
Opening in October 2023, the Lindemann Performing Arts Center at Brown University includes a reconfigurable Main Hall that can be transformed into an immersive experimental media cube, a 388-seat recital hall, a 275-seat end-stage theater, and more. As a small component of this new construction project, Theatre Projects' Steve Rust was looking for blue LED lighting solution to provide the technicians with easy visibility while working or having to get around two technical areas. Learn how they used 500 feet of QolorFLEX NuNeon®, Blue to provide the bright, continuous safety lighting they needed without interfering with stage lighting in this City Theatrical case study.
