MASQUE SOUND & NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET

When Broadway’s Imperial Theatre was transformed for the 360-degree musical, NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET of 1812, Sound Designer Nicholas Pope was presented with some serious audio challenges. To start, he had the daunting task of delivering an exceptional sonic experience to everyone in attendance at what is a uniquely laid out theatre.
