Creating the Piazza with Robert Jones

How do you encapsulate the vibrancy of a sun-drenched Italian city through a theatrical set? That is the challenge faced by Set and Props Designer Robert Jones as he prepares the Royal Festival Hall stage for the six-time Tony Award winning musical The Light In The Piazza.

In this short video Jones explains how he and his team have tried to capture the essence of the streets of Florence, the cafes, the alleyways and the atmosphere, in a stage setting befitting of the story.
