Pfaff-silberblau BETA wire rope winches moves the collar of the Rigoletto on the lake stage at the Bregenz Festival

Columbus McKinnon Engineered Products supplied three BGV C1 BETA wire rope winches for this year's stage programme on the lake stage of the Bregenz Festival. The winches adjust the heavy sections of the stage floor, the so-called collar. The movements of the stage character provide a real show experience at the performances of Rigoletto, an opera by Giuseppe Verdi, which ended this year's season in mid-August.
