Working as Scenic Art Apprentice for the Santa Fe Opera, this production of Alcina included 2 sets of 20ft. curved walls, fully stucco'd with distressed plaster surface finishing. At the base of the walls were  custom-carved "sand dunes," fit to roll with the wall units during act transitions, as well as detach for storage between shows. The dune units are carved from bead & expanding foam, then coated in elastomeric and finished with painted 1/4" cork.
