Die Fledermaus
Die Fledermaus Set

A remnant of the collapse of Baltimore Opera, this sparkling production was saved from destruction. A whimsical front curtain, a partitioned-out house and a luxurious ballroom with poufs, fountains and potted palms give a festive air to the party scenes.

"The sets - particularly the cross-section of the Eisenstein mansion, which displayed a study, the master bedroom, and connecting corridor - were fantastic, as were the costumes." Josephine Yun, Baltimore City Paper (Baltimore Opera Company)

Tosca


Faithful reproduction of the 3 historical locations. Relatively shallow production, this beautifully rendered set can fill a wide stage.

"Top opera billing may not typically go to the stage director and the set designer, but this dramatically engaging Tosca owes much to Bernard Uzan's fluent, savvy stage direction and to the eye-popping sets evoking the grandeur of Rome, circa 1800, that Andrew Horn created originally. Here is opera as theater, the narrative charged by the music and the whole framed and focused by a detailed, naturalistic setting." Lawrence B. Johnson, The Detroit News (Michigan Opera Theatre)

Dead Man Walking
Dead Man Walking Set

This unit set uses multiple layers of chain link fencing and minimal projections to support the storyline and the fast transitions between the scenes.

"Multi-tiered, cage-like sets by Harry Frehner and Scott Reid (originally designed for Calgary Opera) were grim but never oppressive; their transparency almost suggested the possibility of discovery and light in the midst of the dark situation." Wayne Lee Gay, Theater Jones (Fort Worth Opera)

Amahl and the Night Visitors
Amahl Set

A simple unit house that practically clamps together creates the humble setting. Sized to play on a small stage, or expanded with cutout hillsides in the distance, this is a very flexible production.

Daughter of the Regiment


This whimsical set has the air of minimalism while providing a variety of avenues for interaction.  A three piece, ever-present, moutainous backdrop compliments the Act I camp site and Act II home.

"Simple hangings, designed by Boyd Ostroff...favor a storybook look for the rustic Tyrolean setting. The Marquise's interior is evoked with just outlines of pilasters, door frames and hearth." Scott Cantrell Dallas Morning News (Fort Worth Opera)
