Its been a while since the last post, but as you can imagine, its been pretty busy! Over the last couple of months the students have been busy working on an Opera, a Musical and an exhibition, as well as many other smaller events; surely just one is enough! So, expect a few more updates over then next couple of days now we actually have time to sit down and have a much needed cup of tea.
First off, Handel’s Baroque Opera “Radamisto”. As it was set in a museum, our prop students made lots of replicas of artefacts to go on display, whilst our scenic painters got something more concrete to work on…
Meanwhile, in construction, the CNC router came in very handy for carving patterns out onto MDF so the students could make decorative benches that rolled off and on the stage. (hopefully pictures coming soon!).
However, the centrepiece of the set was a large relief carving of a Babylonian army, (thankfully made of polystyrene rather than stone), which a group of students worked on alongside visiting freelancers to get the perfect finish. Once it was all put together on the stage, I’m sure it created quite an atmosphere- I can’t wait to see the final photos!
