Don Giovanni – Oper Köln

For the past month I have been working for the new production of Don Giovanni at the Cologne Opera, bringing the tools of live video into the institution (replacing their DVD players with computer/software based video). Working with video artist Gil Sperling, who created the entire video for the piece, it has been wonderful to bring my knowledge and experience into the world of classic theater, and just incredible to watch the piece slowly come to life.
