The purpose of this thesis is to discuss the use of the lighting design and process for Maryland Opera Studio’s double bill of Zaubernacht and Mahagonny Songspiel to better define Style and Aesthetics as they relate to a designer's Visual Identity. This thesis contains the following: concept, research images collected to visually communicate design ideas to the production team; notes on the discussion and evolution of the style and design concept; technical drawings used to translate the designer's intent into a real-world execution of the design, and production photos of the double bill. These production elements will then be used in conjunction with scholarly research to engage in a conversation about a designer’s visual identity.
