From pantomime and drama to opera and dance, in the UK and abroad, this display will bring together the work of over 100 of Britain’s most creative theatre designers recognised worldwide for their skills and innovative designs.
On display will be designs by three of the most internationally acclaimed set designers of recent years – Paul Brown, Richard Hudson and Ralph Koltai – including Brown’s surreal designs for La Traviata at the 25,000-seat Arena di Verona (2004). There will also be Es Devlin’s 2006 Laurence Olivier Award-winning costume designs for the RSC’s production of Dog in a Manger and designs for Orestes 2.0 by recent Linbury prize winner Becs Andrews.
