Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now available in a completely revised, updated, and expanded edition, this book is the definitive guide to stage lighting design by a virtuoso in the field. As beautiful as it is instructive, this award-winning book on all aspects of theatrical lighting design has become the standard resource in the field. Light Fantastic has received accolades from the theater community, including the Golden Pen Award from the Institute for Theater Technology and Outstanding Academic Title award from Choice magazine. Now in its third edition, Light Fantastic has been expanded to include breathtaking new photographs from author Max Keller's most recent productions. The text has been brought up to date to reflect the latest technological advances, while new essays on light in architecture, lighting for music concerts, and the metaphysics and politics of light broaden its scope. Keller s extensive knowledge and experience on some of the world s most celebrated stages make him the definitive source for veterans or those new to the field of stage lighting. Throughout the book hundreds of vibrant color photographs convey the excitement of live performance. This remarkable volume is an indispensable handbook to stage lighting design.
