    Absolutely amazing!! I would love to experience a trip to one of these stages. They remind me of the those “4D” movies where it seems you are in a toolbox or something and water splashes and wind blows onto you. This is just like that, except so much better!!

    WOW! That’s just amazing. It must add so much to the performances to have such an amazing performance space. I love the skeleton one and the 2011 one, although I’m not sure about the head flipping open bit. Awesome video though.

    OMG! I’m speechless…

    WOW! Every aspect of this Opera is so far over the top–I’d love to see it, but I’m not sure I’d know where to look. Then there’s the listening.

    These are awesome! Would love to see them in Real life to witness the Magnitude and Impact of the designs and show!

    Im sure the performers are figurativley and literally overshadowed by the installations!

  11. Josh

    Woah! That’s incredible!

  12. Master Oche

    Awesome, Im looking foward to see them on tour!!

    The one with the huge eye is from a performance of Tosca. If anyone’s seen the 007 film ‘Quantum of Solace’, you’ll recognise if from the scene where 007 infiltrates the Quantum organisation.

    Somebody’s got a BUDGET!! WOW.

  15. Joel

    I was just going to say that, the budget must be huge! I also wonder about how these hold up in the weather. Pretty cool the way the stage really becomes part of the performance.

  16. leazah

    I would love to be able to design for that some day or at least have that kind of budget for one of my shows
