Here is a fantastic view of FOH mixing for One Day More from Les Miz. Posted on YouTube by Sam Johnson
Captured during a performance of Les Mis at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre, in Michigan. SoundCraft Vi6, mixed with VCA faders using the "line-by-line" technique. Snapshots recalling VCA assignments and various routing and effect parameter changes, such as panning and reverb time. House system is LCR with vocals primarily center and orchestra left/right.
It is expected of any technician that they be prompt, efficient, and responsible. Further, they must be supportive of the team's efforts to put on a good show. In line with that, they should have a good understanding of the chain of command, and what position they hold on the ladder. The SOUND OPERATOR gets their initial instructions on the show from the sound designer, after which they become a part of the running crew responsible to the Stage Manager.
