Giovannetti divides his time between Lighting Design and being
the Head of Electric Construction for the Metropolitan Opera at
Lincoln Center. His design work has centered mostly on avant-garde
artists & performance, especially in unconventional, non-theatrical
spaces such as buildings under construction, waterfront facilities
and large public spaces. His design for "Fenestrations" with choreographer
Stephen Koplowitz (a large-scale work in the windows of Grand Central
Terminal) will be revived this October. He was awarded the
prestigious "Bessie" award for Lighting Design in 1985 & has
designed for several Obie-award winning productions. He received
a MFA in Theatre Design from NYU in 1974. At the Opera, he
is responsible for construction & capital improvement projects
involving lighting, scenery, scenery automation & special effects.
