- Gothenburg Opera House, Sweden, 2015
Notorious has had its world premiere at Gothenburg Opera with video design by Dick Straker.
Based on the Hitchcock movie starring Ingrid Bergman the opera was composed by Hans Gefors and the design strongly utilises the 1946 film aesthetic. A full stage width projected back drop and multiple flown and tracking screens place many of the scenes into the locations and details of the movie plot. Additional filmed elements of key characters extend the movie style whilst clarifying the narrative and maintain the filmic experience of the production.
Dick Straker worked closely with all other design elements to integrate the projected look and feel of the movie into the epic scale of this ambitious opera.
