Songcheng Group Romances Audiences in China with KV2 Audio Upgrades

FOH Staff • International News • November 10, 2020

Six of Songcheng’s 10 Romance theaters upgraded with KV2 Audio systems.

CHINA – The Songcheng Group, which has logged more than 8,000 performances seen by more than 35 million people a year with its Songcheng and Romance series of theatrical performances in 74 theaters across China, recently upgraded the sound systems within six of Songcheng’s 10 Romance theaters with KV2 Audio systems.

More details from KV2 Audio (www.kv2audio.com):

Most of the upgraded venues are associated with “Romance” theme parks in China.

The Songcheng Group is the first performing arts company in China to go public and is also a global top 10 theme park group. With its core competence in performing arts, Songcheng Performance has built a number of established brands including ‘Songcheng’ and the ‘Romance’ show series. The company owns 74 theatres with a total capacity of 175,000 seats, which exceeds the combined number of seats available in two of the world’s most famous theatre districts, namely London’s West End and Broadway in New York. In fact, the spectacular ‘Romance’ series of large-scale, hi-tech productions has broken box office records with more than 8,000 performances per year to an annual audience of over 35 million people. Recently, six of Songcheng’s ten dedicated ‘Romance’ theatres – many of them sited in dedicated ‘Romance’ theme parks across China – have upgraded to powerful KV2 Audio sound systems.

The spectacles are supported by state-of-the-art entertainment technologies.

Songcheng’s ‘Romance’ theatres are high-capacity, Vegas-style structures that have been specially designed host dazzling, large-scale productions with incredibly complex sets designed for maximum visual impact. Each ‘Romance’ show is specific to the area where it is staged, re-enacting local cultural legends in song, dance and breathtaking acrobatics. Audiences can expect a stunning show at every level – visually, aurally and technically.

With a total of 175,000 seats, the venues can seat more theater-goers than Broadway and London’s West End.

All Songcheng ‘Romance’ productions use advanced sound, lighting, effects and staging technology to interpret a period of China’s classic history. As with every other element of the production, the audio has to be world class. Songcheng Performance opted for powerful KV2 Audio systems based on the flagship VHD Series of high performance point source systems for the main FoH system supplemented by the extremely flexible and scalable ES Series for delays, surround sound and effects. The combination provides extreme clarity and true dynamic range to a complex soundscape. The use of point source technology – especially the VHD systems – to cover large spaces has significantly reduced the amount of loudspeakers (and amplifiers) required, saving both space and money as well as reducing the visual impact of the system in the theatre. It also ensures a completely transparent reproduction of the sound source – be it voices, instruments or anything else – so that audiences experience every detail exactly as it was produced.
