Use of Gerriets vision gauzes CARMEN and PARSIFAL to display projections on different levels and heights to create an 3D effect

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (ISN) donated the brand new Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) to the Greek government for the Greek National Opera and Greek National Library during a spectacular celebration on February 23rd 2017. The ceremony opened with official speeches followed by concerts, dance shows and theatrical events, highlighting the adaptability of the new space.

The production was directed by Thomas Moschopoulos and produced in close collaboration with his creative team and VIEWMASTER SA. They worked with Gerriets Hellas to develop creative projections with 3D effect for the mainstage performances using 360 m² of Gerriets CARMEN and 1200 m² of Gerriets PARSIFAL vision gauze materials. The vision gauzes were used to display the projections on different levels and heights using the latest in projection technology.
