As part of my apprenticeship with Berlin Opera Academy I had the chance to design projections for one of Mozart's most beloved operas - the Magic Flute!
The venue for the performances was the Musikbrauerei in Berlin. I've always enjoyed 'found spaces' for opera, and audience was seated on two opposite sides, with the performers in a corridor-like fashion. I particularly loved this door located on one of the walls, where I decided to project onto, as it was the location for the water and fire trials, as well as for entrances of major characters, such as the Queen of the Night.
