The Pearl Fishers

Vienna, Austria
March 2015

Dutch theatre director Lotte de Beer transformed Bizet’s opera Les Pêcheurs de Perles into a contemporary reality TV show, set around an eye-catching circular projection screen by ShowTex.

The translucent RP off-white screen, measuring 7m in diameter, was the main focal point on stage as it was used to play with light during the whole performance.

Impressive front projections alternated with the subtle image of what could be seen through the screen when it was lit from behind. The play of light revealed the choir, in a wooden framework of living rooms, as representative groups of the TV-watching public.

This set is the living proof that it only takes a creative designer and one circular ShowTex screen to create a truly unique and limitless scenery on stage!
