BDP has created an innovative lighting scheme that seamlessly blends cutting-edge technology into a historical setting.
For the first time in a century the Grade I listed Theatre Royal Drury Lane has been completely refurbished to cutting-edge production standards, from the back of the house through the auditorium to the original reception rooms. The building is now fully accessible, with enhanced functional use for a wider variety of theatrical performances.
The lighting design brings together an innovative combination of stage technologies and low-energy LED lamps with 18th-century glass-cutting techniques and low-level integrated candelabras. The result is a warm ambience in keeping with the historic interiors and drawings from architect Benjamin Dean Wyatt’s original plans.
