Next: 3D

The Metropolitan Opera's production of Siegfried that premiered in the last season featured amazing 3D projections. They were developed by the Canadian firm RĂ©alisations which had previously created effects for Cirque du Soleil and other theatre groups. The new technology allows projected 3D images on-stage to be seen without special eyewear. For instance, an opera singer might move inside a projection down the stairs of of a castle, which would appear three-dimensional to the audience. As the singer moves, the set around him or her would shift in what appears to be 3D. As far as I know those projections have not yet been used for a musical.
