The rigging system is used to lift multiple items including stage scenery, lighting equipment, sound equipment and the orchestra shell. The three pieces of the orchestra shell weigh approximately 30,000 pounds. The stage rigging system is a 104-line set, single-purchase manual counterweight system. The powered systems include the fire curtain, light bridge, two light ladders, and the storage and positioning machinery for the orchestra shell. The Filene Center is an open-air theater and equipment considerations shall take into account the exposure to humidity and condensation.
