Shining like a beacon and with a refreshing immediacy to its sound, Canada’s National Arts Centre has emerged from a comprehensive four-year renovation of its edifice and production infrastructure.

Split into two phases—architectural rejuvenation and production renewal—for financial and scheduling reasons, the project was completed within the $225.4 million budget allocated by the Government of Canada, which was apportioned almost equally between the two phases. Architectural rejuvenation of the Ottawa, Ontario building, was completed in time for the commencement of Canada’s 150th anniversary celebration on July 1, 2017, while the renovation of production facilities and infrastructure was postponed until the summer of 2018, when the building was shut down for three months to facilitate work within its four performance venues.

Lighting for the three primary theatrical venues included 56 Chroma-Q Color Force II 72s and 20 Chroma-Q Color Force II 12s
