The Floating Opera Set in Bregenz, AustriaJuxtapoz // Friday, 12 Aug 2011
Earlier this year, we told you about the elaborate stage design that was being built in Bregenz, Austria for the Bregenz Opera Festival and the performances of Umberto Giordano's "André Chénier." Well, it is summertime, and nothings says summer like a day on the lake watching opera on a floating stage, right?
The set was under the direction of David Pountney and stage designer David Fielding. The waterproofed set is built directly into Lake Constance. Damn impressive if you ask us.
