Product Description


Monumental... The visual assembly and display are superb... Wonderful and vibrant production stills... A very important and descriptive record. --Focus.

Containing more than a thousand breathtaking images, production photographs, set models, costume sketches, storyboards to show the impact of design on more than 400 shows from every corner of the world ... You will find in the book not only the big commercial hits of the period (Phantom, Les Mis, Chorus Line) but examples of the revolution in opera design wrought by our own David Hockney, Ralph Koltai and Timothy O Brien as well as many names not familiar to British ears but equally remarkable in their creativity. Beside them, you will find more exotic material from other, completely different theatre traditions jostling for attention in the book's purely chronological arrangement. Work from over sixty countries on every continent is here. --The Stage
