A Midsummer Night's Dream by Benjamin Britten

Design Concept: The Fairies of this Midsummer were created from striking blue hair, polka dots, and layers of patterns. The Lovers stemmed from the 1950's, each lover wearing an ombred effect of one color. The mechanicals had a very warm, and rich color palate also incorporating a good deal of pattern and layers. The Huntington Theatre Costume Shop built Titania's dresses, and Bottom's donkey head. This opera was a double cast production.

The War Reporter by Jonathan Berger

Design Concept: Modern Dress where the chorus members are part of Paul Watson's mind. The Scenery was based on a disheveled orchestra pit, and the costumes were intended to mimic orchestra members. Paul Watson is rooted in reality, and the ghost of Cleveland is in military fatigues.
