Theatrical producers Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Phil McIntyre; Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor (musical directors); and sound designers Bobby Aitken, David Patridge and Richard Sharratt are part of the Paris Las Vegas opening of We Will Rock You. The production, which focuses on a future world in which musical instruments are outlawed, uses Queen's greatest hits as its soundtrack. The show's venue, the 1,450-seat Le Théâtre Des Arts, features an L-Acoustics rig provided by Masque Sound (East Rutherford, N.J.) comprising twin left/right hangs of 10 V-DOSC cabinets with two dV-DOSC applied to front-fill. Ten additional dv-DOSC are flown in a center array, while four co-ax MTD108a systems provide coverage for the rest of the audience.
