    Philips has gone On Stage with Lighting designer Patrick Woodroffe and Lighting director Cosmo Wilson.

The lighting design mainly includes Philips Vari-Lite VL4000 equipped with Philips MSR Gold 1200 FastFit, Philips Vari-Lite VL3500 equipped with Philips MSR Gold 1510 SA/DE and Clay Paky Sharpy fixtures equipped with Philips MSD Platinum 5 R.

    Certain bulbs yellow over time and that would be the most frustrating thing for me. So I'm always looking for a bulb which temperature stays the same and has a long life. We make choices on the source of light. We can't have a bulb that lasts for 60 hrs and then throw it away.”
