Painting Backdrops For Revival Of New York City Opera

In an attempt to revive New York City Opera, NYCO Renaissance is mounting Puccini's Tosca—the first production the City Opera ever did, back in 1944, according to The New York Times. The production will run from January 20 to 24 at the Rose Theatre at Jazz at Lincoln Center. The video above shows four scenic artists, who use only dye to paint a translucent muslin drop for the opera in under 20 hours.
