DAMA’s latest musical, “Butterfly Lovers” has been staged as part of Dama Orchestra’s 20th Anniversary celebration. “Butterfly Lovers -The Musical”, held in Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac), from 5th October 2013 to 20th October 2013, is hailed as the Chinese version of Romeo and Juliet. Its artistic director, Pun Kai Loon said: “It is a love story that could not be fulfilled and it is very much the story of Yentl (a play by Leah Napolin) and Romeo and Juliet combined.” Besides adding some fresh faces and more colour to the musical, the storyline has also been given a new twist.
Mr. Hun Sang Lim, Sound Engineer, Chan Lee Sound & Light Sdn Bhd, who provided all the wireless microphone system for the musical, is happy and confident to use MIPRO’s professional wireless microphone systems as he knows that he does not need to worry about RF interference issues or head-worn microphone capsule failure problems. Chan Lee Sound and Light Sdn Bhd is one of the leading rental companies in Malaysia, with the largest inventory of sound, light and ground support system, covering several high profile events and shows for major long-term clients, such as TV3, MLA Special Events, NTV7 (Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Famili Ceria), Salem, Peter Stuyvesant, government bodies and many more.
For “Butterfly Lovers -The Musical”, Chan Lee Sound & Light Sdn Bhd provided 3 sets of MIPRO ACT-707 UHF Quad-Channel True Diversity Receiver with 12 pieces of ACT-707TM Professional Bodypack Transmitter, 1 set of MIPRO ACT-74 Wideband Quad-Channel True Diversity Receiver with 4pieces of ACT-70T Professional Bodypack Transmitter , and 16 pieces of MU-55HNS Omni-directional Headset Microphones.
