Amazing Stage Fabrics in Motion

The Barber of Seville

Fribourg, Switzerland
August 2020

More than two centuries ago, Gioacchino Rossini composed his version of Il Barbiere di Siviglia. Thanks to compelling dialogues and a majestic golden set design, the vocal whirlwind still touches young and old today.

Looking for an original and flexible background which won’t go unnoticed? Get overwhelmed by the impressive effects of metallic stage fabrics.

The playful combination of lushly draped Galactica and golden LurexVoile 100 Crunch curtains determines the glamourous atmosphere of the entire opera piece. Aria after aria, the striking backdrop enhances the dynamics between the main characters. Impossible romance, deceit and defeat. The lightweight stage fabrics easily adapt between the acts, following the rushing rhythm of the play.


Glittery fabrics such as Galactica and LurexVoile reflect all stage lights, ensuring a glamourous effect on stage. Especially when crunched! As the wrinkled fabric generates some sort of kaleidoscopic light reflection. A grotesque result when combined with more sober costumes to demonstrate the contrast between wealth and sobriety. The masterpiece of the Italian opera buffa is back more spectacular than ever thanks to the versatility of metallic stage textiles.

Are you looking for a golden backdrop to enchant your audience? The shiny LurexVoile 100 will surely amaze with its impressive light effects.
