La Fenice: Stage Set

A sculptural stage set for Madame Butterfly at La Fenice Venice

Artist: Mariko Mori

Client: La Fenice Opera House

Location: Venice, Italy

Performance: Madama Butterfly by Puccini

Fabricator: Factum Arte

At the start of 2012, we started a collaboration with Mariko Mori. One of the first projects was to create a stage set for Madame Butterfly Opera at La Fenice in Venice. The concept was to make a single mobile sculpture that could activate the stage in distinct ways from Act I to Act III.  My role was to transform Mariko's idea into a form and 3D model that could be built by Factum Arte.
