From a simple beam of light worthy fancies of the extraordinariest space dream are created. This can be seen in the dome of the Planetarium of the Topsail (River), that it presents, since July, the Laser Cosmic Concert (Cosmic Concert of Laser), produced for the North American company Willy Feliu Productions, and already attended for almost six million people, in Los Angeles, New Iorque, London and Tokyo.

Now it is the time of the success in the Brazilian market. Figures, however geornétricas, however disformes if overlap, if they dilatam, if they twist, if they espiralizam, waving on a perfect projection of that it is the sidereal space. Everything this to the rhythm of a deep varied musical comedy and good taste, that presents the Blue Danube, of Johann Strauss, or groups of instrumental rock, as Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Pink Floyd.

The Carioca programming of the show was haul for the proper operator, Soraya Bittencourt, from a musical cassette come of Los Angeles, that offers to signals and basic indications of the adequate accompaniment to the sound, and of an orientation of the North American technician Dexter Gocha on as to use the resources of a machine of laser ray.

Soraya, that is formed in electronics, considers the acceptance of publishes excellent Brazilian to it: " Much people come to attend of new, and in the weekends the cupola always is crowded; when to finish the season in the River, intends to go the Brasilia and later São Paulo."

Fifty and seven buttons, that command complex and delicate electronic a circuit, take the beam of laser ray to a set of lenses, prisms and mirrors. In the movement of all these buttons, Soraya finds the space ideal to free its creativity. It explains that, although to have a programming, two presentations never are identical: " I always look for in accordance with to vary my inspiration and with the taste of the public, who assists me with applauses at the moments that more please." The infinite resources of the laser already are used in the cinema, mainly in Hollywood.

Soraya counts that the proper Willy Feliu already worked in cinernatográficas productions, also in the some effect special of the ticket office success that was the film War in the Stars.

The show presented in the planetarium of the River comes despertando the interest of much people that it intends to carry through productions of the sort here in Brazil. Some musical groups already had requested the aid of the Willy to use the laser in its presentations to the living creature, also to the outdoors, without projections in screens or cupolas.

"This already comes being done in the exterior, and sufficiently believes that vaí to be spread out in Brazil, after the precedent that we create. Until nets of television already in they had looked them - Soraya counts. The Laser Cosmic Concert is presented in diversified schedules, of terça fifth with rock sung, and of sixth a sunday with classic music and instrumental rock.
