Theater an der Wien, ''Radamisto''


The stage is surrounded by three walls for projections, on the back and on the sides.The picture shows the combination of frontal projections on a surface made of black BOP - Opera tulle and of lighting effects coming from the space between the Ghiaccio transparent backdrops and the black walls installed in succession behind the tulle.Tulle has both the assignment to serve as a support for the projections ...

... and that to filter the brightness of the Ghiaccio transparent backdrops.Behind the badkground wall it is visible, through the door, a Rear-projection screen realized with the film RAR - Arizona.
The Ghiaccio transparent backdrops create an air chamber in which it is introduced some smoke that is then illuminated both with light coming from inside and from outside, depending on the demands of the scene.The scenographer, the light designer and the projectionist have so at their disposal some walls for projections with manifold properties: the black BOP - Opera tulle stops in fact only a part of the light of the projections ...
... while the Ghiaccio transparent backdrops partly reflects them and partly allows its passage. In this way also the space that separates the Ghiaccio transparent backdrops from the black walls creates a screen that, thanks to the smoke, acquires some depth and movement.
Behind the door it is installed a Rear-projection screen RAR - Arizona filtered by a backdrop made of black BOP - Opera tulle too.
