Romeo and Juliet
Model Scale: 1/4" = 1'- 0"
Scene Design Class at University of North Carolina School of the Arts 2022
Professor: John Coyne
Designer: Nikolas Serrano
Built and Painted By Nikolas Serrano
Concept: Set it in 19th century England - the Capulet's are high society opera goer's while the Montague's are a family traveling circus troupe. The audience sits in the center of the space in chairs that spin independent of each other while the action happens all around them. This is to allow audience members to follow the action they want to follow in a more individual and immersive experience.
