The action begins with the closing of the curtain on the latest notes of Carmen and it takes place behind the wings, during the dismantling of scenes. In fact, we see in the image the back of some scenographies realized with ASC1000S - Sceno 1.000 cm.
Even if author of important sets for the prose and for the opera, Luisa Spinatelli, which are known the collaborations with Carla Fracci and Beppe Menegatti, she preferred ballet during his career (in 1976, in The Nutcracker with the choreography by Miskovič was the first woman to be a stage deisgner after sixty years of performances at the Arena of Verona). Very important also her collaborations with the Piccolo Teatro of Milan and with Giorgio Strehler.
The stage installations of the Teatro Alla Scala made dusty to art the TSM - Silviagrips dance floor to accentuate the atmosphere of the back of the stage necessary for the performance of the plot.
On the scene you read, like in a superimposition, the painted motives on the large backdrop made of BGO - Gobelin, grey colour.
Again the painted backdrop made of BGO - Gobelin, colour grey, put in proximity to the proscenium. Behind the dancers, a backdrop made of ASC1000S - Sceno 1.000 cm on wich you can read in transparency the motives painted on tulle.
With the progress of the action, the set design is clear as to express and to highlight increasingly loneliness of the protagonist.
