About the Author
George Tsypin is a sculptor, architect, and designer of opera. Since he won an International Competition of "New and Spontaneous ideas for the Theater for Future Generations," his opera designs have been seen all over the world, including the Salzburg Festival, Opera de Bastille in Paris, Covent Garden in London, La Scala in Milan, and Metropolitan Opera in New York.. He has worked for many years with renowned directors such as Peter Sellars, Julie Taymor, Pierro Audi, Francesca Zambello, Jurgen Flimm, and Andrei Konchalovsky.
Forget everything you think you know about contemporary theater design. The explosive work of Russian-born George Tsypin is changing the way audiences see theatrical productions of all kinds, and it will alter the way you think about what you see on a stage. Thanks to Tsypin, the days of stark, minimalist, almost empty sets are over. His maximalist creations fill the theater's black void with a fevered combination of elements, referencing everything from Russian Constructivism to the works of Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid. Set design, under his direction, is a unique form of architecture, a celebration of structural and sculptural possibility.
