Lighting and Projections Designed by Donald Edmund Thomas

Date: April, 1996

Act 1 The Church of Sant' Andrea, Della Valle, Rome.
The "Te Deum," Finale.

The entire backdrop was a projection screen. The image of the church was front projected in the center, and on separate side screens, for Act 1. This image is a copy of the Pani projector slide. The actual slide measures 7 inches square. Photographed with 22.5 degrees distortion which matched the angle of the projector located on the #1 Electric. When projected, the church columns appear straight and vertical.
