Time for the Opera…

As well as our two amazing productions currently running in our Milton Court venues, we are also preparing our Silk Street Theatre for this terms Opera, a Debussy and Donizetti double bill designed by Yannis Thavoris: http://www.gsmd.ac.uk/about_the_school/news/view/article/award_winning_opera_department_presents_a_double_bill_of_debussy_and_donizetti/

Hopefully you’ve seen some of the photos of us building and painting the set (if not scroll down to the previous post!) as well as some of the props being made for the production but here are some photos of the set being fitted-up into the theatre…

The main set component is a large platform that stretches across the stage and moves up and down stage.  There are also several pieces of scenery that fly into the space for different scenes including large white walls with doorways and a massive wall that consists of several flats, a large mirror, signs and a large portrait.  The floor also hides a secret but perhaps you’ll have to come and see the show (or wait until I get a picture!) to find out what it is…

Hope this wets your appetite for what is bound to be another fantastic Guildhall School opera!
