RE-OPENED APPLICATIONS FOR LIGHTING DESIGNER

The Last HotelCUOS

20:00, Sat 30th November 2019 - Mon 2nd December 2019 at Fitzpatrick Hall, Queens' College
Michaelmas Week 7 to Week 8

Looking for:

  • Lighting and Sound Designer

'The Last Hotel', a unique and singularly powerful work that combines theatre, opera, recorded music, and film is looking for a prod team to help bring this electric show to life. The production roles for 'The Last Hotel' will involve a much greater involvement in the creative process of developing a show, and will allow for artistic freedom to showcase creative skills. It is an exciting and challenging opportunity to help craft a subtle and poignant work that reaches the heights of what modern opera can achieve.

Please email any applications to st714@cam.ac.uk describing any relevant experience and what excites you about working on 'The Last Hotel'.

Lighting and Sound Designer

The tech director of ‘The Last Hotel’ will play an essential creative role in interpreting and communicating the themes of the opera. We plan on mixing the fantastic lighting capabilities of the Fitzpatrick Hall with dark onstage lighting which the characters interact with to explore the themes of death and love in the opera. The lighting will be paramount to our interpretation and communication of the opera’s narrative, and so is a brilliant chance for a lighting designer who wants to be more involved in the interpretation and creative process of a work.

Part of what makes ‘The Last Hotel’ such a singular and electrifying work is its blend of live music and recorded sounds. Whether it is voicemails from character’s family members that intensify the tragedy of certain scenes, or cuts of jarring pop music that shatters the operatic soundworld, the use of recorded audio in this opera is deeply affecting and requires a committed and passionate tech director. They will work to record audio and will then spend time with the musical director to coordinate recordings with live music. They will also have the opportunity to create a soundscape that creates atmospheric tension as the audience walk into the theatre.

Deadline for applications: Friday 25th October 01:00
