Thierry Bosquet

Thierry Bosquet made his San Francisco Opera debut with Die Fledermaus in 1990. He has since designed sets and costumes for the San Francisco Opera productions of The Merry Widow, Capriccio, Ruslan and Lyudmila (originally designed by Alexander Golovin and Konstantin Korovin for the 1904 Glinka Centennial and realized by Bosquet), Don Giovanni, Aida, Carmen, Pelléas et Mélisande, and Louise. Bosquet’s designs for the Company’s production of Tosca are based on the original 1932 designs by Armando Agnini; the production was first mounted in 1997 and in 2004 and 2009. The Belgian designer has created the sets and costumes for over seventy-five operas and ballets at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels. He has also designed sets and costumes for over fifty operas, ballets, and dramas produced in France, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, South America, Australia, and the United States. Recently designed works include The Magic Flute, Werther, The Mikado, and La Traviata for New York City Opera; Tosca at Seattle Opera; The Merry Widow with Utah Opera; Rigoletto and Otello in Liège; La Belle Hélène for the Canadian Opera Company; and Capriccio in Washington, D.C.
