“This bold and grand setting is realised though the creativity of optikal bloc, whose innovative work brings the seedy and corrupt world to explosive life with an aesthetic akin to the Verona Beach of Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 movie “Romeo + Juliet”. Indeed, the seven meter high LED panels that dominate the backdrop, not only bring the work to explosive life, but enable emphasis on the show’s rock roots.”
