My guesses on what we’re looking at:
- The big sketch in the middle has got to be the stage with various characters (I count 5 on the stage). Behind and above them are two more figures, whom I think are some combination of Giovanni, the Commendatore, and/or the conductor.
- On the bottom right is likely the Don himself
- On the top right is . . . I have no idea. One of the women? The statue of the Commendatore? Some other part of the set?
Gehry’s sketches make total sense to me once I actually see what is built, but at this phase, it’s a bit tougher. Perhaps some of you have a better sense.
