It was magical! Like walking off into the sunset on a rainbow

What a spectacular show at the Met! Robert Lepage’s Rheingold is a sophisticated approach to Wagner’s mythical realms. The scenery was amazing and the intricate sets were bathed in a vivid, dramatic lighting. A focal set piece was a cleverly designed floor that looked like row of giant piano keys. They would twist, turn and react to the people moving on them. There was a moment when a few opera divas slid down between them while sitting on rocks. It was magical! Like walking off into the sunset on a rainbow … to me it was reminiscent of the wizard of oz.

Rheingold reinforces my belief that lighting is such an important element to consider when designing interiors. The multidimensional and sophisticated use of lighting is not just for the theater! You can make any space feel dramatic, vivid, sunny, restful, joyful or sexy just by the use of lighting.

How have you used lighting to shape the mood of your space?
