    EOW 119 The Magic Flute.....opera set

    EOW 119 The Magic Flute.....opera set

    119 Stage set from Mozart's "The Magic Flute"


    Brief:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Magic_Flute

    for anyone unfamiliar with Mozart's opera this show is a fantasy and has many oportunities for Imaginative stage treatments. the link above has a fairly complete plot synopsis.

    I am your Director for this one. And i will try to give feed back as a true director would

    * choose a scene to design the set for
    * your stage is as large or as small as you like, and you have an unlimited budget
    *yhe show is a fantasy and as the director I am in the earliest stages of deciding on the style and look of the showi. I am asking you as the set designer to toss your ideas out and see what flies
    * welcome to my world, this is truly concept art.

    Another great topic!!!
    Everything I know about The Magic Flute are the background scenes by Karl Friedrich Schinkel like this and this. That was a scenography...

    Flute of magic

    Hi Chaosrocks,
    Thanks for taking the time to do this.

    My environment of choice is the grove of palms with The council of priests, headed by Sarastro. I am foucusing on capturing the epic theme in this scene.


    I think the first sketch has alot of energy and mood. The first sketch also dosen't really show that its a grove, it looks more like a swamp so....

    The second sketch is more epic and describes more of a grove and has more of a theatrical look to it. I would like to combine the two somehow but I can't really think of what to do.

    Let me know.

    and how do you create a space inbatween the attached images so they are not stacked ontop of each other?

    I want to go there and hang out.

    Hi Chaos, sorry for the stupid question but are we meant to design this so our image looks like what you'd see looking at the stage from the audience's perspective, (so it looks like a stage set) or are we just doing an image which could, theoretically, be used to create the set? I hope that makes sense.

    I think we need to create a landscape that is viewed from the height of a normal person. In this way the image can be used for a stage background.
    So don't think we need to draw the stage itself.

    Actually I meant a stage set not just a back drop. the straight backdrop style is about 200 years out of date for theater. this is a 3 dimentional space seen from the audience point of view. Guilefine this is a lovely start but you seek to be concidering it as a flat painting see how you can develope the space a bit more. remeber your character will be interacting withe the space like a town in a video game or soemthing.

    It's a lovely snake but you haven't really made a set... more a scene fromt he opera. the Snake is either a character or a prop depending on if it's a puppet or mechanical

    wixxi is inncorect

    a there is a difference between an environment ..and a landscape.
    I intend for you to draw the stage.... it is a rectangular space, with one wall missing that is viewed through the transparent or missinfg wall
    the space can be divided and subdivided in any fashion you chose to make the space
    a. more interesting
    b. represent a much larger area
    c. provide multiple levels for the actors to play on.

    ok, my concept of the aim of this EOW seems to be wrong, but I'm posting these anyway. Both are ideas for the look of act 1 scene 1 - the 'foreign land'. I guess too epic and landscapey for the purposes of the project. Blah, nevermind. I'll try again at some point.
