Massive set construction for Madama Butterfly

By admin on August 7, 2017

TigerTurf is very proud to be involved with Red Circle Projects, who designed and built the set for Opera Australia’s performance of Madama Butterfly.  That this stage is floating, moored on the harbours edge with the Sydney Opera House and harbour bridge in the background, makes this project all the more extraordinary.

Our in-house reviewer, Dion Tucker, had only good things to say about the show.  Dion commented “We loved the show, but also were floored by the intricacy and nature of the stage logistics, particular the interval construction – quite amazing”.  Need we say more!

To create the set, Red Circle Projects constructed a polystyrene “hill” over which a waterproof membrane was laid followed by 1300m2 of TigerTurf’s Envy 35 Landscape grass.  The installation of the grass was completed by TigerTurf’s Platinum distributor Champion Sports Grounds who completed the install within a very tight timeframe of just two days. The build and installation of the grass, tower and house was completed in 5 days.

This stunning show ran for 3 weeks from 21 March 2014 – 13 April 2014.
