Andrea Chénier

Andrea Bocelli

@ Teatro del Silenzio 2018

Inside the magnificent setting of the Teatro del Silenzio, created at the behest of Andrea Bocelli in the natural amphitheater of the Tuscan hills of Lajano, near Volterra, we have recreated a classical setting for the Andrea Chénier Opera.

The challenge was to combine the projected scene with a natural location while maintaining the landscape vision, including the ArtInsolite project's large installation.

We projected our digital sets across the entire space of the stage, through a translucent tulle and directly onto the surrounding mappable surfaces, including a bridge that spanned the entire stage.

The video sequences we made contributed to the emotional involvement of the audience. Thus, the spectator was totally captured in an all-encompassing spiral, created by direction, dramaturgy, and set design.
