Stage Lighting for Students

Basic reference for beginning lighting design students.

JEFFREY E. SALZBERG has designed the lighting for dance, theater, opera, and puppetry all over the United States and in Canada. He has lit several solos, including A Shropshire Lad, featuring former New York City Ballet principal dancer (and current Pacific Northwest Ballet Artistic Director) Peter Boal, for Manhattan-based Dance as Ever, and has also lit a new work created on Royal Ballet's Alexandra Ansanelli. DanceView Magazine said of A Shropshire Lad, "It was an extraordinarily moving piece, especially the elegiac last song. . .where the effective lighting (by Jeffrey E. Salzberg) seemed both to box the dancer in and to elevate him above all human suffering."

With Sandglass Theater, he took Between Sand and Stars to the 8e Festival international des artes de la marionnette in Jonquière, Quebec. Jeff also designed the lighting for the Peccadillo Theater's Off-Broadway production of Room Service. said of the original Off-Off-Broadway production, " by Jeffrey E. Salzberg...serve(s) the play effectively... with just the right touch of realism...." The New York Times has called his lighting, "ingeniously atmospheric." Many of Jeff's designs have won critical praise. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram called the lighting for Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth's To Turn Again, ". . .a devastating blend of image and sound." The Houston Chronicle, reviewing another production, said, "With its. . .lighting and dancing, the company has dramatically lifted the level of local dance."
