The COVID pandemic has hit many industries hard but none more so than the arts and culture sector.
We were therefore delighted when we were approached by our client to design a structure that would be large enough to accommodate a substantial set design, and also meet all the strict COVID regulations for theatre performances.
Following several planning meetings, we decided on a 30m x 35m structure on a 4m high leg, fitted with black-out PVC roofs and bespoke clear gables, and fully open to all sides to allow for great ventilation.
The plans were ambitious and at time felt as though they would never come to fruition but with a 120 strong production team, the production of Verdi’s Falstaff has been a huge success. Audiences have been delighted by the performances and it has no doubt helped to revive live entertainment in Scotland.
The show in Glasgow has now come to an end but there is another opportunity to see this fantastic production at Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre during the Edinburgh International Festival from the 8th-14th August 2021. You can find out more about the show here.
