La Favorite an Opera by Gaetano Donizetti, 2013.
Commissioner: Co-production Theatre des Champs Elysees/Radio France. Paris. The narrative of this 4 Act Opera is developed through the use of architecture, color and light that function as a metaphoric device to tell a story. Color acts as a mechanism for creating the ambience of the stage, and light is used for both illumination and appearance. Commonplace objects are added to give the audience a familiar reference, and virtual images are employed to guide the viewer from the literal to the abstract.
