Placing a large LED screen behind a combination of frosted film and rear projection foil turned the opera performance Fidelio into an immersive projection spectacle.
For Copenhagen Opera’s version of Beethoven's Fidelio, set designer Steffen Aarfing defined the stage with fabrics that find strength in their sobriety. A frosted foil, placed in front of a large LED screen defines the mood on stage with a marvellous play of light and shadow.
Backlighting the matte fabric mimics the look of a foggy window and creates stunning blurry images when the actors perform both behind and in front of the see-through PVC.
Placing a rear projection screen in between the matte foil and the LED screen resulted in beautiful imagery on stage. As the retro projection screen blends subtly with the background, it doesn’t distract the viewers from watching the performers. But when needed, immersive projections definitely add to the show.
Turn your performance into an immersive spectacle.
