"I have worked in many countries of the world, however, not in your country yet, - Gert Hoff said during the press-conference. - It will be the most powerful project in the world focused upon architecture in the sky as the main idea. 50 most powerful lasers with 70 km of rays length will reflect the Opera theater first in the sky and then it will be gradually transferred onto the very building." According to Mr. Hoff this show will be the journey to the sky for the Lvivites.
Even bad weather conditions cannot darken this journey. Moreover, according to Gert Hoff, the possible fog and rain will allow to see the light rays even clearer.
The show will last for about 15-20 minutes. There will be used the most powerful projectors in the world, about 100 people will be involved. Though, according to Mr. Hoff, this is not the biggest show he has ever organized. There have been shows involving up to 100 thousand people.
According to the chairperson of the Lviv 750th anniversary celebration board Ksenia Kurylyshyn, Gert Hoff agreed to organize the grandiose light show for Lvivites free of charge. The German stage-director first and foremost would like to impress and surprise the citizens. The only thing paid by the city council are technical expenses for the show.
Now Gert Hoff together with Ruslana are working on music performed during the light show. These will be the works of both modern composers and those written in the 15th century. The live singing of Ruslana will accompany the Gert Hoff's show.
