Inspired by the stage of the Toronto Opera House, one of my favorite venues, I decided to make a stage, with a band performing on it!
About this creation
So, I visited my parents this summer for a few days. This meant I got to finally reunite with my boxes of bricks and add to them a pair of things I bought while out in university. So what did I decide to do? See, I'm a huge fan of going to Metal shows and one of my favorite venues is the Toronto Opera House; which was an actual opera house back about a hundred years ago but now hosts a wide variety of concerts, with my favorites being the International Death and Folk Metal acts. While this build had the Opera House's stage in mind, I did not use any pictures of the actual stage as reference, and as such, the build resembles the inspiration very little.
The stage borrows heavily from the Architecture series' Big Ben in terms of technique and style (as well as pieces).
The band and instruments themselves are a re-make of an older MOC I made about 6 or 7 years ago; matter of fact, I think of this as a spiritual successor to said MOC . That previous MOC was intended to be something along the lines of a festival stage, whereas this is an indoors venue's stage.
In terms of details, I decided to go in as deep as I could - I built amps and added them to each side of the stage; the red bricks you see on each side are stage curtains; there are stage lights (much better pulled off this time than on the previously mentioned MOC in my opinion) and small monitor speakers in front of each band member.
A couple parting detail shots!

BONUS: Actual stage of the Toronto Opera House, with the mighty Fleshgod Apocalypse upon it!
Built August 2013. About a week after seeing Wintersun, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Starkill and Arsis at the Opera House.
