Craig Swindells, Stage Manager, Royal Scottish National Orchestra
“The Opera Stand has been used in St Davids Hall in Cardiff for over 25 years and served us extremely well over this time. They have been used as part of many performances including our own resident Orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, right down to school performances taking their first steps onto our stage.”
Neil John, Deputy Technical Stage Manager, St Davids Hall
“We chose RAT stands for our hall partly for their sheer beauty, which complements our hall perfectly, but also for their quality. The padded pencil holder, the locking mechanism, and the ease with which they can be adjusted is perfect. Tightening up loose stands takes just a few moments, and they are as good as the day they were taken out of the box.”
David Palmer, General Manager, Soka Performing Arts Center
We have been using over 70 of RAT’s Opera stands for the past 9 years since Wales Millennium Centre opened. The stands are used regularly by musicians from Welsh National Opera, as well as the many touring productions that we host. A rock solid construction and excellent design has led to us needing to do very little maintenance on them over the past 9 years, they’re pretty indestructible and completely fit for purpose.
