Boris Godunov at Covent Garden... and me in a dress.

Here is a little trailer video of my current project, Boris Godunov at the Royal Opera House. 

This gem of a two hour piece is Directed by Richard Jones and Conducted by Antonio Pappano.  Bryn Tyrfel is taking the title role for the first time. It's my first time working with Richard, after seeing so many of his shows and hearing so much about his work its a real pleasure to watch his creative process, the man is certainly a one off.

This production has live global cinema broadcasts and will be available to own on DVD in the near future. keep an eye out!

Antonio Pappano conducts a new production of Musorgsky's magnificent opera, starring Bryn Terfel in the title role and directed by Richard Jones.

So as the title suggests, I might be doing the O'l dressing up in a frock number in this production.. For some reason the creative team thought I best resembled a Russian gypsy clairvoyant. This is the design result.  

 

And here are a few more shots from the production.
