Laurent Pelly

Details

Position: Director

Nationality: French

The French opera and theatre director is sought after by the world’s most prestigious houses. With a natural affinity for Italian and French repertoire, his creative curiosity has led him in recent years towards other composers including Russian and Czech. He brings theatrical insight to his work with singers and his concepts often contain surreal invention and a dark sense of humour. A master of detail, he designs the costumes for all his productions, and occasionally the sets. He was Director of the Centre Dramatique national des Alpes-Grenoble from 1997 to 2007 and Co-Director with Agathe Mélinand of Théâtre national de Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées from 2008 to 2018. Taken from the Festival 2022 programme book.
