The fairy-tale opera “Hansel & Gretel”

Design Statement

The inspiration for my design was the Grimm brothers' fairytale pop-up book I found. I wanted all the scenic elements to be flat and made from paper. The proscenium arch represents a huge opened book, and the stage itself it’s sitting on an opened book, and far upstage is a representation of the Ilsenstein forest.

As a designer I had to solve three major spaces:
1. The interior of broom maker’s house (act 1)- it’s a dark and sinister space where the child labor and hunger are present. The scenery is flat and monochromatic in gray tones. I designed the stencil using the text from the fairy tale, that was laser-cut and stenciled on the house and the trees.

2. The Ilsenstein forest (act 2) - is magical and frightening space; The forest was represented on the backdrop (it was designed to looks like a book illustration), also eight 2 feet wide flat trees were flight in this scene and followed by seven huge glowing birds painted with the fluorescent pain for the magical scenes.

3. The Witch World- for me is a whimsical and fantastic space, that had to attract children, it’s a combination of Circus, Candy Land, Black Magic and torture space. All the scenic elements in these Space looked delicious and had some danger elements. The design for the gingerbread house is a combination of the gingerbread house cake and Baba Yaga’s house (is a dark witch from the scariest Russian fairy tales I was growing up with, her house is on chicken legs), that’s how my gingerbread House got chicken legs.

The use of color it is transitioning from no color black-and-white act1, to few color act2, that culminates with an explosion of color in act3 in the witch’s world.
