    By Devin Zydel on 2008-07-29

    The official Quantum of Solace blog has been updated today with another crew member from the 22nd James Bond 007 film: David Pountney, artistic director for the Bregenz Festival.

    ‘I’m the artistic director of the Bregenz Festival,’ Pountney says on location in Austria.

    ‘This is the incredibly special setting,’ Pountney says in reference to the Bregenz opera house and floating stage which play a role in the Bond film. ‘It’s the largest outdoor stage in Europe. It has an auditorium of 7,000 people here and it’s like a kind of amphitheatre, really. The stage is set into the lake, so the stage is in effect a little island.’

    Putting the stage together itself is already a huge operation, but when you add the whole film unit on top of it, then you can see that this is really a rather demanding exercise.’
