Owl and the Pussycat

The Royal Opera house took on this unusual project and asked RNSS to assist with the complicated (and unusual) sound requirements. 

It has to be said this was without question one of the most demanding and pleasurable experiences of the year.  The team put together a working plan and system the enabled us to be part of something utterly delightful. What could be better than a sunny day on the water’s edge with some amazing singers and musicians. The English summer being what it was it is true that that we spent a lot of time huddled under umbrellas and tarpaulins but even then we never actually lost a show.

Owl and the Pussycat

We don’t think we can say it better than our client who sent us this following the shows:

“The Owl and the Pussycat was a challenge of unknown quantities: An opera, on a pontoon; travelling down London's canals, stopping in 6 entirely different sites, including the Olympic park where it was relayed straight onto their Live Site screens on the river. We needed someone who could look at it from an artistic perspective as well as technical. And we needed immaculate sound, which what we got from Richard Nowell and technicians Matt and Xavier, as well as endlessgood humour in some unusual settings!.  In the end over the 2 weeks of performances around 14000 people saw the show - and heard it crystal clear.”
