MPR: Historic scenic backdrops on display in Winona
The Theatre Du Mississippi will showcase old theatrical backdrops in a program that coincides with the Great River Shakespeare Festival. This forest drop is among the seven that will be paired with snippets of theatrical text and classical music. Each drop was made around the early 20th Century for use during Masonic iniation ceremonies. (Photo courtesy of the Theatre Du Mississippi
Any place the fairies spend a night ends up with this sort of gypsy-ish feel to it. Lots of lanterns - or, in their case, LED "fireflies" inside essentially a box with twig framework, translucent flower-petals that look like stained glass, and vine or woven grass handles. Still working out the technique, but it's fun!
