Polish theatre goes digital with Midas

AUTHOR: Inavate

When the Zbigniew Hubner Theatre in Warsaw, Poland underwent major renovations earlier in the year it turned to Midas Klark Teknik for its PRO6.

The theatre’s full audio refit was handled by Audio Plus, distributors of Midas and Klark Teknik in Poland.

Zbigniew Hubner Theatre, which was founded in 1945, has long been a focal point of Polish theatrical culture, attracting leading artists, directors, musicians, choreographers and stage designers both nationally and internationally. The venue has a long history of using Midas consoles, with a Midas Legend 3000 and a Venice installed in theatres two and three respectively.

Sebastian Kuźma, the theatre’s head sound engineer, chose the PRO6 having previously used the Midas Legend 3000. He was particularly impressed with innovations such as the ability to control the time of crossfades between two scenes with one simple jog wheel.

The theatre’s three performance spaces encompass various performing arts, from drama through to music and dance. Audio Plus has provided training on all three Midas consoles for the theatre’s sound team.
