The Arts | Meet H.M.S. Pinafore's Set Designer | PBS

Duration: 05:11 (Full Program)

When designing the set of H.M.S. Pinafore, Frank Hallinan Flood looked to the British Royal Naval Museum for inspiration. Flood transformed Guthrie Theater's thrust stage into a 19th century ironclad ship with a state of the art lift, trap doors, revolving sets and a deck for the orchestra. Flood and H.M.S. Pinafore Director Joe Dowling have collaborated on productions for more than 30 years.
