Every year, preparing for the new season, theaters carefully lowered a heavy beautiful chandelier into the auditorium. In Odessa opera, for example, the chandelier weighs 2.2 tons and 12 m high, in the Sevastopol Drama Theater - 1.2 tons, and the heaviest chandelier is located in the Opera Rome Theater - 5.2 tons, made from Bohemian glass and 262 light bulbs shines.
Thousands of crystal pendants wash up so that their shines are enough for a year ahead, change the light bulbs, clean the brass parts from dust. This process would be long and complicated. But, these large chandeliers are equipped with a special device, allowing to easily lower them down and raise to the ceiling.
