Travel and theatre break provider, National Holidays have recently commissioned LEGO model designer Elspeth De Montes to recreate miniature theatre scenes out of LEGO bricks. Elspeth spent over a month to complete four of the most iconic scenes from theatric performances, with great precision and an eye for detail. Check out the LEGO creations below to see if you can recognize the scenes from these famous productions. 🙂
➡ LEGO DIRTY DANCING – THE LIFT: This scene captures one of the most romantic moments in musical history, when Patrick Swayze lifts Jennifer Grey to the soundtrack of Time of my Life. Spectators are also shown as they are being dazzled by the performance, true to the original act.
➡ LEGO LES MISÉRABLES – FRENCH REVOLUTION: This detailed recreation reflects the importance of the political upheaval in France, from the well-known tale of Les Misérables. The six figures are dressed in their country’s colors, ready to battle for their freedoms.
➡ LEGO THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA – THE GONDOLA: Here you can see the boat scene from the theatre classic, The Phantom of the Opera. The eerie lighting enhances the dark and mysterious setting, but it also clearly highlights the two main characters. The detail and effort gone into this build can be seen through the intricacy of the outfits and candles.
➡ LEGO THE LION KING – PRESENTATION OF SIMBA: Loved by children and adults alike, this emotionally filled scene pulls on the heart strings of many. We all remember the scene where Simba is held up in front of the other animals during the Circle of Life song. Great use of the LEGO Legends of Chima heads as masks!
Sweet creations, aren’t they? The effective use of backgrounds, lights and shadows is particularly interesting. You can visit Elspeth’s flickr gallery or blog for more. What do you think?
