AMERICAN NEW WAVE

This year we put forward an editorial idea with several New York production designers. The Scenographer will embark on an "overseas journey" to discover young directors, set and costume designers who are among the most representative of the Broadway theatre scene. We will seek to explore the vitality and originality of theatre in the United States, a multicultural galaxy composed of a diversity of ethnic influences. The programme comprises six monographs of 130 pages each. All texts are edited by authoritative American theatre critics. Hundreds of theatre productions, all the works introduced and explained by the designers themselves, plus contributions from directors, playwrights, costume designers and lighting artists.

Scenic designer WILSON CHIN READ MORE Meeting Wilson Chin was like starting out on a train journey: through the window complex scenarios materialized, layered on different planes, ordered landscapes, natural colours that are never artificial, flower-studded hills, frames within which even objects create an action and interact with the characters themselves. Chin’s sets shape harmony, define movement, imply a design method like a geometric construction, exquisitely architectural. The scene thus becomes increasingly all-encompassing, tending to embrace the audience.

Twenty years already! Way back in 2000, Purcell’s Dido and Eneas, one of the jewels of the repertoire. Vincent Boussard, equally passionate about theatre and music, was embarking upon a promising career as an opera director. A true man of music and theatre, a combination of instinct and intelligence, he rapidly established himself as one of the major figures on the European opera scene.
