|WIRE EFFECTS UK|
The art of modern stage flight begins in 1950 with the arrival in America of the dashing young Englishman, Peter Foy, to stage the flying for Broadway's Peter Pan. His newly developed systems allowed for soaring aerial choreography that thrilled audiences and marked the beginning of a new era in stage flight. Soon 'Flying by Foy' became the standard of the industry. The standard stands today. Foy continues to lead the industry in safety, artistry, innovation, and collaboration.
Whenever the magical, creative, and safe flight or levitation of performers is required, Foy can supply your needs from turnkey packages, to the design and engineering of the most astonishing flying sequences in the industry.

|POP CONCERTS AND STARS|
When Cher performs at Caesers Palace, in Las Vegas, she enters over the heads of the audience in a spectacular flying chariot . . . flown by Foy! From the classic stars of Vegas to shows by Paula Abdul, The Backstreet Boys, Garth Brooks, and David Bowie, the flying effects of Foy have allowed their performances to soar even higher!
|DANCE AND OPERA|
As with plays, there are a number of operas and ballets where performers traditionally fly. These include the ballets: La Sylphide, and Nutcracker; and the operas from the Ring Cycle, Flying Dutchman, Macbeth, and Hansel and Gretel. At times, new works or newly interpreted works require elaborate planning and staging of the flying sequences to be worked out well in advance. Our extensive facilities allow us to work directly with directors, choreographers, and performers to workshop or stage the most complicated of flying sequences.
