Wetten dass ..? TV show
The summer special of „Wetten dass ..?“ was shown by the German television channel ZDF on 23rd June 2007, live from the bullfighting arena „Coliseo Balear“ in Palma de Mallorca. The Open-Air highlight of the summer came up with a lot of prominence, who sat on the sofa of Thomas Gottschalk, or provided for musical entertainment. The complete live show was set in stage visually with alpha one lighting fixtures of the FALCON™-Range.
By order of the company Voss Mediadesign, the distributor A&O Lighting Technology delivered and installed 42 FALCON™ BEAM 3.000 Watt Xenon searchlights. For unloading the trailer, the installation and the rehearsal, the A&O team had to arrive at the Balearic Island 13 days before the live show, for that the huge construction of stage setting would be well timed set in stage with light. Additionally the equipment of alpha one was in use for recording "Viva Mallorca" on 20th June. The music show was moderated by the German moderator Andrea Kievel and took place in the same stage setting like "Wetten dass ..?".
The lighting fixtures of the FALCON™-Range were placed by A&O in different hight scales within the arena and standing at the Truss, which were built-on right-sided and left-sided of the main stage. Responsible for the lighting design was Michael Donecker / 1. cameraman of ZDF. After the rehearsal for „Wetten dass…?“ and an unobstructed TV-Live-Show, A&O dismantled the lighting technology within 2 days. The German TV channel ZDF was really pleased with the result of the production.
