Giulio Cesare is a Handel baroque opera that lasts for over three hours. This production at the Finnish National Opera was conceived as a piece that would use only light to illustrate mood, emotion and place. The FNO opera house in Helsinki has a very sophisticated lighting system with nearly 150 automated fixtures rigged over the stage and out in the auditorium and so it was the perfect venue in which to take on such a challenging brief. The two concessions we made to the regimented idea of using no scenery was to build five large mobile light boxes which appeared during the last act of the opera and also to make full use of the theatre's five stage lifts.
