The new Marina Bay Sands Theatres opened in November 2010 with Riverdance and The Lion King, the first of many international events and Broadway-style shows. With stages over 120 feet wide and 50 feet deep, these impressive rooms will play host to some of the most complex productions in the world. With seamlessly integrated technology throughout the theatres, the staff will have access to the most advanced lighting and rigging systems available, and the audience will experience the first events of their kind in Singapore's history.

FDA worked closely with Marina Bay Sands, Moshe Safdie and Base Entertainment during the design phases to ensure that audiences, performers and technicians participate in the stunning, multi-layered productions modern theatre has to offer.

The spectacle of Broadway style shows and concerts is made possible by large capacity power points, which are placed strategically for automated rigging and stage machinery. Power is distributed throughout each venue with 1216 dimmers and relays per theatre for lighting equipment. In spite of the large power capacity, the daily energy draw of the theaters is "green" thanks to the use of energy efficient lighting fixtures both backstage and in the auditoria.
