Don Giovanni is a famous opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Recently, award-winning architect Frank Gehry, was asked to design the opera set that the LA Philharmonic was staging at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Gehry added his signature abstract shapes with minimalistic colors and design. He filled the stage with large crumpled paper, bringing a touch of modernness to the century-old opera.

Gehry is an acclaimed architect based in Los Angeles and originally designed the landmark Walt Disney Concert Hall. He is also known for designing the titanium Guggenheim Museum in Spain, and the MIT Stata Center.
