Zhuhai translates as “pearl and sea”. The new opera house and landmark of the city also embodies this meaning in its unique architecture. Two gigantic 90 and 60 m high “shells” accommodate a 1,550-seat concert hall and a 500-seat theater. Thanks to dynamic LED façade lighting from Traxon e:cue the entire ensemble is even more spectacular, especially at night.

Spectacular LED media façade with Traxon Dot-XL LED dots
Traxon Dot-XL 9 RGB units with a total of 51,000 pixels are installed behind the double-sided perforated aluminum façades of the Zhuhai Grand Theatre. Using the colorful, individually controllable LED dots, spectacular lighting and video animations can be realized on the “shells”.

As standard, the animated content shows different scenes from the sea, depicting the history of Zhuhai as a major fishing port in the Pearl River Delta. The lighting can be easily adapted to special seasonal events and celebrations at any time. Nine e:cue Butler PRO and one e:cue LCE2-fx are used for programming and replaying images and animations.
