Painting the opera…

Take at look at these two incredible videos showing time lapses of some the processes used to create the paint finish on the opera flattage, designed by Yannis Thavoris.  The scenic art team have an amazing ability to take quite a plane ordinary wooden flat turn into a piece of scenery that has seems to have a life of its own and really feels part of the narrative on stage.  These are going to look brilliant and the videos give you an idea of just how many processes are involved in creating this wonderful aged effect.

Thanks to second year technical theatre student Max Narula once again for the videos!
