From the scale model of a set to its use on the Festival's various stages, many intermediate steps are involved in putting on the event, calling on a wide range of professional skills. Metalworking, carpentry, decoration, sculpture, research and design, as well as creating accessories, costumes, make-up, hairdressing or managing sound, video and lighting... all these are among the wide range of trades that are essential to putting on an opera!
On these Open Days, attendees were divided into small groups and guided by an outreach officer from the Passerelles team. They were given the opportunity to discover twelve trades presented by the technical staff and see some of their previous work. The experience was an ideal way of understanding the technical skills required for these professions and a chance to meet teams who are passionate about their work.
