Scenic Design for 33 Variations
“Bridging the gap between the early 1800s and present day,
a new location for every scene, and utilizing Beethoven’s original sketches
were all unique challenges faced in the design of this show.
The director and I also wanted to create something original while staying grounded in the world of the play.
After many discussions and brainstorming sessions, I think the final product reflects
the director’s vision and meets those challenges we faced head-on in a way that
enhances the story and creates a world for the actors to really play.”
– Nicholas Acciani
