Architecture
English term or phrase: sightlines from the follow spot room
The whole chandelier can be lowered to the floor for maintenance. It is also an important acoustic reflector. This explains the particular form which scatters and diffuses sound. The distance between the strips of crystals increases towards the stage to allow a greater amount of sound to pass through and therefore contribute to the reverberance of the space. It is placed forward of the centre in order to allow unhindered sightlines from the follow spot room on the rear of the oval reflector. Finally it forms a visual closure to the hall itself to take attention away from the technical spaces. and structure above.
When it is lit at full effect (100%) it seems as though the chandelier is a gigantic skylight, but in reality there is no interaction with daylight as many people seem to believe.

seguipersona
Explanation:
Il follow spot è un tipo di faro che viene usato sopratutto nei teatri e in italiano è chiamato "seguipersona". Quindi direi che in questa frase il senso è "permette al seguipersona, ubicato nella parte posteriore del riflettore ovale, una visione libera/senza ostacoli.
