San Antonio’s Tobin Center for the Performing Arts Chooses Clay Paky Lighting for Performance Spaces

San Antonio’s new Tobin Center for the Performing Arts will open in September with a complement of Clay Paky Alpha Spot QWO 800 fixtures dedicated to both the H-E-B Performance Hall and the Carlos Alvarez Studio Theater.

Rising behind the façade of the former San Antonio Municipal Auditorium along downtown’s famed River Walk, the 1,750-seat multi-purpose venue will be the home of the San Antonio Symphony and other resident companies. It also plans to offer a diverse array of entertainment from comedy legend Bill Cosby and radio icon Garrison Keillor and “The Prairie Home Companion” to the Scottish Ballet’s production of “A Streetcar Named Desire.”

The four-level H-E-B Performance Hall is the largest of the Tobin Center’s performance spaces; the Carlos Alvarez Studio Theater is a black box-style space with multiple seating options. Dealer Texas Scenic and rep Roy Harline are providing the Clay Paky products.

Six Clay Paky Alpha Spot QWO 800s were selected as “the best fit” for both performance spaces. “We required, quiet, low-maintenance fixtures that offer a variety of design options and would last for many years,” says Tobin Center Technical Director Stefan De Wilde. “Following extensive research, The QWO 800s had the smallest footprint, the lightest weight and the least amount of ambient noise. Their efficient lamp also has incredible output. The QWO 800s are also extremely flexible since they can be used as a wash or a spot fixture.”

The fixtures will be shared by both the H-E-B Performance Hall and the Carlos Alvarez Studio Theater.

Francesco Romagnoli, Clay Paky Area Manager for North and Latin America, commented, “The Tobin Center is a great space and we’re proud to be a part of it. We congratulate Mr. De Wilde and everyone involved.”

A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive North American distributor for Clay Paky.
