Opera Takes A Giant Leap Into The Future #MusicMonday


Opera Takes A Giant Leap Into The Future

Ditrector/video artist Marco Brambilla is turning his surreal and sci-fi talents towards opera. Via Co.Design:

Brambilla has just created his first set design for French composer Claude Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen in Antwerp, Belgium, opening today.

So, what do you get when you put together the grandmother of performance art, a high-tech couturier, and a video-art visionary together to interpret a 1902 opera? Apparently, viewers will be able to step right inside their collective mind’s eye.

A giant, 23-foot concave mirror, made to “create the impression of being inside a silver eyeball,” according to the press release, will serve as a backdrop to the abstract set. Onto the “iris” of this stage eye, Brambilla will project a surreal composition of imagery, ranging from NASA footage and celestial imagery. Stage props will include monumentally sized crystals, designed by Abramović, and as for the costumes—we’ve only seen peeks of Van Herpen’s designs, but we’re fully expecting some otherworldly garb.
