Designed by Tony Award winning set designer Derek McLane, the stage for the 85th annual Academy Awards incorporated over 100,000 Swarovski crystals.  During a performance of the Oscar winning theme song from Skyfall, superstar Adele stood in front of a custom made 80’x40′ crystal curtain.  As part of the design, McLane also incorporated 70 crystallized panels for the 18 opera boxes inside the theater, all adorned with over 20,000 crystals.
