Although Foti International Fireworks have gained a world-wide reputation for the quality of their outdoor display designs, it is also because of their abilities as premiere pyrotechnic manufacturers that they have gained a reputation within the world of stage productions.
This has most recently been demonstrated in Korea, where Foti’s Australian-made Close Proximity Stage Pyrotechnics were recently used in the Korean production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘The Phantom of the Opera’.
Played at the “LG Arts Centre” in the Korean capital Seoul, approximately 1792 pyrotechnic effects such as Flame, Flash & Spark Pots were used during an 8 show per week, 7-month sellout season which ended in June.
Richard Pochalski, Production Electrician for ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ said “…quite simply …I use Foti International Fireworks for quality and consistency …and it has always been like that.”
As well as ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, Foti’s Close Proximity Stage Pyrotechnics have been seen in many recent stage productions, including the BBC’s ‘Tweenies’ Australian Tour, The Wizard of Oz Australian Tour, ‘High Five Alive!’ Tour of Australia and New Zealand and Australian productions of ‘Cats’
