The spectacular Light Show “Mount Magic” uses the historic inner facades of the courtyard at Innsbruck’s Imperial Palace as a canvas and takes viewers back to early geologic time.
Continental drift, volcanic eruptions and the formation of mountains dramatically altered the planet's history… Travel back in Earth’s geologic history: Pangea is the ancient supercontinent that slowly broke apart into the continents we have today about 200 million years ago. The amazing Light Show Mount Magic consists of surround sound, theatrical lighting, and the latest architectural video mapping technologies. Video mapping is a technique that uses existing architecture as a canvas to bring the building alive. Seven projectors are used to transform the historic inner facades of the courtyard at Innsbruck’s Imperial Palace back to late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras on a ‘screen’ that measures over 1,300 square meters.
Designed by Viennese Lichttapete light show artists, this captivating 3-D video mapping light show continues the tremendous success of last year’s light show “Max 500”, which celebrated the 500th Anniversary Year of Emperor Maximilian’s death. Just in case you missed this wonderful show last year: “Max 500” will be staged once again this year!
