Madama Butterfly timelapse
In an extraordinary example of Australian creativity and ingenuity, the entire 3000-seat outdoor theatre and 1276sqm stage for Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour was built in 3 weeks, culminating in the first preview performance on 19 March 2014. This clip shows the build of the set, the first act (with full firework display and giant moon rising from the Harbour) and the incredibly deconstruction of the set that occurs during interval in preparation for Act 2.
