Vis Center Research To Be Used in Opera

Director and designer Richard Kagey shows a model of the set for the UK Opera Theatre and Atlanta Opera's 2011 production of "Porgy & Bess."

Vis Center research has developed new technology that will allow screens with projected video to be used as part of the set design for upcoming opera productions at the University of Kentucky and the Atlanta Opera. With a footprint of only four and a half feet, the screens create a new opportunity to use projection as a part of the staging. Using multiple rear-project units, software blends the projections into one image. Read the Lexington Herald Leader article for more information about the project.
