Set Design: Ada create wonderful stage for architectural opera Europa

Guys, I am going to level with you, I don’t really know what “architectural opera” means. If that means we’re through, then ok, let’s go our separate ways (don’t, I need this). What I can tell you is that it fuses “architecture, music and performance,” so “the stage becomes the lead actor.” I know this because Ada, a London-based architecture practice, educational and events project recently worked with composer Adam Doen to stage Europa for the Bloomsbury Fete and that’s how they described it. The pictures look amazing; colourful and playful but clearly carefully-thought-out to help bring the performance to life. A romp through their previous work suggests Ada are well worth keeping an eye on too.
