Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour – Madama Butterfly

Red Circle created a large contoured hill on the water stage covered with grass and bamboo for Act 1.
Polystyrene blocks were cut to CAD files, and arranged on a multi-tiered scaffold structure which was then covered in a waterproof membrane to protect the Orchestra underneath.
All was then cloaked in astro turf and the bamboo was inserted into tubes in the polystyrene.
Act 2 required a total change, with prefabricated industrial buildings craned into place over the 30 minute interval completely transforming the stage.
