Cleopatra - Edinburgh Fit-up

The 'fit-up' of Northern Ballet's Cleopatra at Edinburgh Festival Theatre, March 2011. This video shows the lighting rigs, set, cycloramas and projection equipment being installed and tested. All in the fit-up takes around 16 hours, and though we'd love to show you every exciting minute in real-time instead we've compressed it to less than three minutes to be nice to YouTube...
