Magic Flute Set Design

I was asked by the Jackson Symphony to create a set design that opened up like a storybook to change scenes, but has the ability to be light weight and break down into 3′x3′ panels for transportation. This was a fun project being able to design the set as well as the panels. The scene begins in the forest and the two center panels open up to reveal the next scene—the queen’s garden.

Assembled the set design measures 6ft x 12ft.

I collaborated with Steve Zimic who helped with the engineering and construction of the set.
