When a 10 meter high structure must be rolling on stage, stability must be studied carefully. This Elektra co-project from Ruth Berghaus / Hans Dieter Schaal, settled by Opéra National de Lyon (France) / Semperoper Dresden (Germany), had specific engineering matters.

This 7.5 tons set had to be divided in six rolling parts, easily and quickly fixed together. Once assembled, stability was not an issue, but during rolling rep, with embedded technicians, we had to prevent the worse case scenario. Our CAD engineering team designed each structure to get center of gravity ideally placed, for safe moving.
