Setting up “Tosca” - with Pacific Symphony Rome CAN be built in a day!
Breaking down a pops concert and building an opera set, Pacific Symphony’s stage crew worked through the night to set up the 90-ft screen and build the stage so that projection and lighting could rehearse at 6 a.m. the following morning. In the video, you’ll notice a number of lighting cues as well as each projector getting its rough alignment and test images. Pacific Chorale then enters to work with Music Director Carl St.Clair before the orchestra arrives. http://www.PacificSymphony.org
Music Director Carl St.Clair introduces the music of Puccini’s “Tosca,” a unique semi-staged production by Pacific Symphony, taking place February 21, 23 & 26 in the Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. For more information.

Pacific Symphony invites Southern California artists to submit works for consideration for public display in the lobby of the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall during our Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony performances in May/June 2012.
Works of all kinds are encouraged and will be considered, though they must be self-contained, free-standing pieces that can be presented in a lobby setting requiring no installation.
Successful submissions will be inspired by the themes of “Brotherhood” as evoked in Beethoven’s final symphony and/or provoke thought about the profound effect this work has made on our world at large.
