For this year’s theme “Viva Verdi! Es lebe Wagner!” of the Barcelona shopping night we brought characters and atmospheres of the operas from Verdi in the street Passeig de Gracia to life.
Based on Verdi’s Operas there had been seven figures chosen to be made as giant masks: Alfredo, Duca, Violetta, Toreros, Trovador, Rigoletto, Gitanillas. Notched laser-cuted foil builds the massive mask fixed on a wire construction which may be carried around by person and so turn into a moving scenography.
Another character, Wotan a Scandinavian God, of the opera Valqueria by Wagner had been projected on the building Palau Robert.
As valorisation of the VIP area a golden Valhalla tree underlined through light became part of the scene.
