What’s Opera, Doc?

For three weeks in April, I helped out scenic painter extraordinaires Gen Goering and Regina Weller on the Lyric Opera’s 2015 production of Tosca.

Over the three weeks, we painted over 5,000 square feet of flooring, along with three large backdrops, faux sculptures, and countless pieces of sets, walls, fireplaces, and other architectural elements.

Gen and Regina are amazing, and it was quite an exsperience to paint side by side with them and paint on a large scale for the first time in many years since helping out with some large backdrops for Blue Genie back in Austin.

It was a great experience, and make sure you take a look at the pics below to see some of the work in progress!
