Opera San Jose – 2014/15 Season
Technical Director: John Draginoff
Scene Shop Supervisor: Ariel Lacey
The Magic Flute was by far the biggest show I had ever worked on when we began build in spring of 2015. We built a raked stage with two extensions that coffin locked in, two massive rolling forced perspective sets of beachers, and multiple hard flying units that each had embedded color changing LED rope lights. We also worked with mirrored plexiglass for our light-up palm trees, and created two gigantic tracking triangles for a backdrop. I ran a crew of between 2 and 8 carpenters during build, and a crew of 15-20 union hands during load in.
