  4. Houston Ballet's Jewels

    You are correct. The set was very simple and remained the same for all the pieces. "pulled curtains at the wings entrances" as you said with a color cyc. Lighting (on gray marley, with a cyc, some minimal textures on the floor) gave the different looks for each Jewel. Perhaps youtube will give a better idea of the set. http://www.youtube.com/houstonballet
