Rolex Mentor & Protégé Gala
London’s Royal Opera house in Hamlyn Hall
The world-famous Swiss jewelry manufacturer presents a semi-annual philanthropic dinner for artistic mentors and their protégés. A tribute to various artistic disciplines, this event was held in London’s Royal Opera House, in Hamlyn Hall. This gorgeous wrought iron and glass atrium makes for a challenging rigging environment; once solved, it is a gorgeous and elegant locale. The scenery was 40’ high with glowing elements in the walls. Tables were everywhere and lit in soft fall foliage tones and textures. Guests included Martin Scorsese. We have since also designed this event at Lincoln Center’s State Theater.
