In part one of the SVC Podcast, SVC Contributing Editor Bennett Liles talks with Christian Fuchs of Stage Tec about the production of the opera Aida on the Rhine. The show, produced by Swiss TV in a number of locations around Basel, Switzerland, took the opera out of the theater and went to the streets. Fuchs details his role in the audio production and talks about the challenges of coordinating a huge cast and wireless monitoring links and dozens of RF microphone systems on the performers.
