A night at the Opera

This evening I ventured to the Nat (National Theatre) in St Kilda to see The Merry Widow which my friend was lighting. I remember now why I light musical theatre and not opera.

Opera just moves too slow.

She did an excellent job though, considering it was her first proper design as such. The looks were simple, but elegant, which is what you need in opera.

Did I mention star cloths are cool?

The Nat is a lovely old venue, but how I wish some person the same age as the theatre would just drop dead and leave their fortune to the venue....

The decal gap....

No, it's not like 'the sock gap', it's that place on stage where the lead performer always wants to stand, but the decals only get his feet...
