Benois Pavilion

Set Design- Set Building

If sets used to be made mainly on cloth, today in the stage design workshops, new materials are used more and more often. This transformation has allowed set designers to improve their technical knowledge and to create technologically complex elements.

On average, in one season, four to six new productions are made, while ten to fifteen repertoire productions are revived.


This is the department where the various set elements are made. The work preserves all the characteristics of ancient craftsmanship: each handmade piece has the characteristics of a prototype, of a unique product. These creations are made on a full scale drawing.

Stage Plastics

Besides the large statues, this department is in charge of all the surfaces that cover sets, rocks, bricks, trees and any type of architectural elements.
