Our client came to us to theme their annual event for 1300 people held at the Perth Exhibition and Convention Centre. Phantom of the Opera was the theme for this year and we were excited to work with them to create a magical setting.
The event was held in the Pavilions and was to have a black tie feel. The space is huge with soaring high ceiling so anything we brought in had to be on that similar large scale to have an impact.
We took parts from the stage show and looked at re-creating these spaces in the room. Our number one priority was to create a huge central chandelier over the stage and dance floor. Our design incorporated 14 of our existing chandeliers hung in a formation to replicate one large one. We then used beading around the exterior to tie the piece together. The team at AV Partners worked on chasing the lights in the individual chandeliers so we could add the drama to the piece.
At the back of the room was a huge bar area made up of our straight and circular pieces. Overhead we hung more chandeliers. Our large columns and building fascia acted as the backdrop for this space. Huge ornate gold frames were hung from the wall with projected images of characters that moved throughout the night.
We also looked to re-create the Phantom’s dungeon. Backdrops of the dungeon walls surrounded a custom made boat with low fog swirling around the bottom. This was the perfect place for guests to get photos taken. A drinks bar, tables and stools added seating to this area.
The final space was styled as a rehearsal room. A backdrop served to give the vision of being backstage and make mirrors, luxurious furniture, sheet music and roses all tied together to create a magical chill out space for the guests.
The table centre pieces were a mix of our 1.3m candelabras and tall vases filled with roses. Each guest had a mask placed at their setting for them to wear on the night. The room had a magical feeling that was brought to life with lighting and AV from the team at AV Partners.
We love this look and can not wait to do it again!
