A Midsummer Nights Dream
For Pittsburgh Opera
This was the land of the extremely tall tenors. The front light angle was very shallow and the relationship of the cyc to the center playing space wasn't very far. Also the center disk was elevated by 2 feet. This made life difficult. Only that problem but the director/designer wanted the piece to be dark..dark...dark. He was very easy to work with though. In the end we reached a mutual agreement on the darkness. After all it is midsummer NIGHTS dream.
