In April of 2008, Pope Benedict XVI visited the United States for the first time, which was the sixth official papal visit to the US since 1984. Mountain Productions proudly provided staging for three of the stops on the Pope’s visit.


On one of his last stops, Pope Benedict XVI celebrated mass with a crowd of nearly 60,000 strong at Yankee Stadium. Statistics for the event show that over 200,000 people initially requested tickets. Elaborate and elegant production was required for the event, and Mountain Productions was onsite to build the main stage area for the mass which was placed on second base. Similar to his other tour stops, the Papal stage was adorned in scenic, and the main stage at Yankee Stadium featured speaker clusters mounted to the stage roof.
