The Elixir of Love

Gary Wilson, Scenic Designer
Opera Saratoga
Saratoga Springs, New York
June 2014

This show took place as part of a 2 show rep season.  The set was engineered to be able to fit through a standard double door.  Specail care was take to hide the seams of individual units along vertical or horizontal architectural texture indicated by the scenic designer.  The horizontal architecture of the clapboard on the house made assembly for reps a challenge.  The escape platform just inside the house had to be re purposed during reps as an aerial platform to have people high enough to install the upper half of the house.  The set was eventually purchased by another opera company.
