The Met’s new production is a double bill of Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta paired with Bartok’s Bluebeard’s Castle. In Iolanta Marc Heinz’s lights were fantastic and created a variety of different tones on the basic unit set. Lights in Bluebeard’s Castle, once again by Marc Heinz, were superb as were the numerous projections.

Overall, a whopping 668 lighting fixtures were deployed across the production.

and operator Michael Seeverens did with the equipment, it looked sensational.
