The Details: Florida Grand Opera is proud to present an exciting production of a classic tale – Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette – which appears at the Broward Center on May 10 & 12, 2012. Directed by David Lefkowich, this production employs innovative light projection and multi-unit sets to drive the emotion behind the timeless tale of star-crossed lovers. Lefkowich consulted the libretto, pulling from it fire and water imagery that complements the mood of each scene. For instance, light projections reflecting fire ignite during the first duet between the lovers at the Capulet ball, followed by cooling reflections of water in the balcony scene. Coupled with a three-unit facade, the light projections and set work in unison to produce images and ideas. This backdrop allows the singers to truly shine by creating grandeur through simplicity.
