The Haunted Manor

The Haunted Manor is an opera in four acts composed by Polish composer Stanisław Moniuszko.  The Pocket Opera production required the construction of more set pieces than any other opera I’ve designed, including two walls with large portraits upon them, a fireplace, and an enormous grandfather clock.

The grandfather clock had to be big enough to house a tenor inside for twenty minutes of the third act!

The fireplace, on the other hand, could be scaled ever so slightly down, and has been subsequently used in several productions, including La Cenerentola.
