La scala di seta

Milan, Italy
November 2013

A 12m x 12m GiantMirror by ShowTex was the focal point during the performance of “La Scala di Seta” by Gioacchino Rossini at Teatro Alla Scala di Milano.

The angled mirror allowed the audience to experience the play from two different points of view, offering them a fascinating view of everything that was happening on stage.

The unique set design and the reflections of the actors created a high visual impact, as spectators were able to see more than they would in a traditional theatre setting.

ShowTex also supplied the black Molton lining for the mirror and the special truss it was mounted in.
