Stage Lighting Design by Neil Fraser

Stage Lighting Design is a comprehensive introduction to the creation of lighting for performance, tracing the evolution of lighting design from ancient drama to contemporary theatre.

Neil Fraser covers everything that today’s designers will need to know, from the simple nuts and bolts of equipment, through to the complexity of a full lighting rig, including all aspects of the stage electrician and lighter designer’s roles.

This revised second edition includes new material on historical development, intelligent control systems and the latest advances in LED fixtures and luminaires. Each chapter includes key exercises, now totalling 100, that enable the reader to practise their skills on a wide variety of lighting challenges.

The work of current designers is showcased and analysed, with examples from complete and detailed lighting designs.
