Juan Diego Florez held a benefit concert at Lima's national stadium on July 1 to help fellow Peruvians who were affected by natural disasters from this spring. Both Tito Vattuone and Milagros Florez produced the show and used a lighting design by Gianfranco Di Vitto that featured a collection of CHAUVET Professional Maverick and COLORado fixtures. 

“Tito Vattuone, head of production, and I were looking to convey a sense of Peru in the show’s set,” said Di Vitto.  “We wanted lots of landscape, with open areas and lots of Peruvian roads. I imagined Juan Diego with a background of the Andes, the coastlines, and the jungle with large clouds over the orchestra. I translated this into the curves full of light in the truss rig.”

The 50 Maverick MK1 Hybrid fixtures were used to create subtle color washes that suggested different environmental images. The wide zoom range of the Maverick fixtures also helped to create the right look for the show.

 “The ample zoom that doesn’t lose brightness at wide angles allowed me to cover the entire orchestra,” Di Vitto added. “We are talking about a 32 meter wide stage, which held 240 musicians in the orchestra, 200 children in the chorus, 10 musicians in the folk band and more than 80 dancers that moved along the entire stage. That’s over 500 performers moving on stage at once!”

The rig at the show also included 32 COLORado Batten 144 Tour washes and 45 Q-Wash 560 moving lights.
