Lighting Design - A Hand of Bridge

Lighting design by Rose A C Howard, Set Design by Colin Stewart

This was one of three operas which ran as one performance. I hung and focused specials for my particular opera, which ran overtop of the plot of Tyler Elich for 'The World goes 'Round'. Each character had a different signature color. This ones was green. There was also a strong yellow, red and blue color for the other characters. We flipped quickly between a regular hand of bridge to beautiful and haunting (but very short) arias. They were inner and personal, and the added definition of color helped to tell each characters story as well as seperate them from one another for the audience in a large proscenium house.
