Lowering \"The Lighthouse\" part of the set in the Wyly Theatre

Video: To The Lighthouse, Part 4

Next in our series of videos from the Dallas Opera and Dallas Theater Center's co-production of The Lighthouse: The tricks of putting water onstage.



published Thursday, March 15, 2012

The centerpiece of The Lighthouse is, not surprisingly, a lighthouse. Technical director for the Dallas Opera Drew Field describes as the fourth actor in the show.

New York-based and Tony-nominated set designer Beowulf Boritt's lighthouse has a personality that, with the help of  lighting designer Tyler Micoleau's artistry, shifts and changes throughout the opera. It is both beautiful and frightening. It looks as if it has weathered many storms, and will be around for much more to come. Sometimes it feels homey, other times cramped and very, very isolated.

Oh, and the lighthouse is surrounded by water. The stage of the Wyly Theatre has been carefully flooded around the rotating base of the lighthouse.

In the following video, we show you the set going from an idea to living, breathing reality.
