Poda Stefano

Born in Italy, in search for aesthetic and conceptual unity, his artistic work always encompasses direction, set design, costume design, lightning and choreography in a personal seal founded on a visionary, multilevel imprint balanced between ancient images and contemporary art. His new production of Tristan und Isolde (cond. Z. Mehta) opened the 77th Festival Maggio Musicale Fiorentino (2014), while in 2015 he staged Faust (Teatro Regio di Torino, DVD Unitel), Andrea Chénier (Korea National Opera), Thaïs (Theatro Municipal de São Paulo) and Otello (Hungarian State Opera House, Budapest). The year following he staged Ariodante (Opéra de Lausanne), L’elisir d’amore (Opéra national du Rhin, Strasbourg), Titan (choreography on Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 for the National Dance Company of São Paulo), Carlos Gomes’ Fosca (Theatro Municipal de São Paulo) and Il trovatore (Teatro Lirico di Cagliari). Moreover, among others, in 2017 he staged Boris Godunov (Korea National Opera) and Lucia di Lammermoor (Opéra de Lausanne). // Last update: July 2017
