Take a tour behind the scenes at the upcoming stage and set design for the Oscars. This year, Tony Award-winning Production Designer Derek McLane addes a fresh perspective to the set of the Dolby Theater, incorporating over 100,000 Swarovski crystals into the Oscar’s stage design and theater decor. Talk about old time Hollywood glamour! We love the fantasy of the Oscars here at The Recessionista.
Watch this video to see how designer McLane incorporated over 1,500 pounds of Swarovski crystal into the stage and auditorium design. It took over one month to realize his vision of a spectacular 80 feet wide and 40 feet high crystal curtain among other dazzling elements. This set delivers real Hollywood glamour. The full design concept and visuals of the Oscars set will remain a closely guarded secret until the live telecast on Sunday, February 24 th, when the Oscars will be broadcast across the globe on ABC at 7 pm EST.
