Michel Gagné's Production Design Samples

Those close to me know that one of my long time dreams has been to design sets for a live opera or classical ballet.

Imagine my surprise when I was contacted by Simon Capet, artistic director of the Victoria Philharmonic Choir, in June 2007. He asked me if I'd be interested in designing a live shadow puppet theatrical presentation of Dvorak's epic masterpiece, "The Spectre's Bride". It didn't take long for me to agree to the proposal.

Below, are samples of some of the scenery and shadow puppet designs I created for the show.
