WI supplied 800Kg hoists to the Koninklijke Muntschouwburg - National Theatre of Belgium - for a production of Giuseppe Verdi’s powerful opera Aida staged in the temporary Palais de la Monnaie venue in the Tour & Taxis area of Brussels – a historical industrial area of the city currently undergoing extensive regeneration.

The request came via the technical director of the Koninklijke Muntschouwburg.

Aida – a work of epic proportions – was sung in Italian and directed by Stathis Livathinos, artistic director of the National Theatre of Greece. It was his first opera production and referenced many current issues like the rise of nationalism, struggles for freedom and exile in an opera in which personal desire and individual destinies is faced with a sense of duty and notions of collective responsibility!
