The Théâtre de Verdure, located in the heart of Montreal’s iconic La Fontaine Park, presents a wide range of free programming each summer, including dance, music, circus, and film shows. Having recently undergone a stage-to-stands update, this gorgeous open-air theatre now offers a high-quality experience to the 2,500 spectators it can accommodate.   

After responding to the City of Montreal’s call for tenders, Solotech was very proud to learn that it had been awarded this major mandate. Despite the extremely tight deadlines requiring perfect logistics, our team of experts rose to the challenge with flying colours. 

Stellar collaborative work 

Solotech called upon some of its best assets to equip the theatre with an audiovisual system that lived up to expectations. Director and system designer Sylvain Lemay, along with technology specialists Mathieu Guilbeault and Pierre-Paul Gignac, worked together to optimize the integration and use of carefully selected equipment, including the d&b audiotechnik sound system, the monitor console and Allen & Heath FOH console and the ETC lighting console. The team also installed a state-of-the-art Barco video projection system capable of wowing an audience when called upon. 

Furthermore, project manager Annick Ferland was constantly in contact with the City of Montreal and ensured that the project ran smoothly until recently. Amélie Savoie, who expertly coordinated the entire project, says that “all the team members pooled their talents and demonstrated incomparable efficiency so that the theatre could open its doors in time for the start of the program.”  

Resourcefulness was the order of the day 

Every project comes with its own set of complications. In this case, Solotech once again showed why its clients could count on them. Given the project’s tight deadlines, our team had to be resourceful in sourcing the equipment carefully selected by our specialists to ensure a high-quality experience. Thanks to our strong relationships with our suppliers, we were able to source all the required equipment and complete their integration before the theatre reopened. “Solotech did everything possible to make the stars of the Théâtre de Verdure shine in the open air,” says Martin Berthiaume, Business Developer at Solotech.
