Italian Girl in Algiers, Garsington Opera

What's on Stage

George Souglides spectacular designs, integrated with clever lighting effects, range from dancers in  colour co-ordinated hijabs to a vast illuminated staircase that undulates like a magic carpet.

Opera Today

George Souglides' set would surely have delighted Liberace.

A Flowering Tree (Gothenburg Opera)

The Scandinavian premiere of John Adams' A Flowering Tree at the Gothenburg Opera was a rarity in more ways than one - not only in that the work is rarely staged, but also in the rare synthesis of music, dance and direction to produce a real Gesamtkunstwerk. This visually enchanting production should be seen not only by opera lovers but also by ballet fans.

Nicola Raab's visionary direction focussed on the music and the characters on stage, making excellent use of a minimalist set, beautiful costumes (both the responsibility of George Souglides) and Aaron Black's atmospheric lighting.

The Marriage of Figaro (Goteborg Opera, Sweden)

..Director Stephen Langride writes "I have looked but not been able to find another work that comes so close to perfection as The Marriage of Figaro". His production then goes on to prove how right this contention is in every dimension.

Golden Cockerel (Bergen National Opera)

...designer George Souglides and his stunning costumes were much coveted....

Classical Music Magazine

with designs by George Souglides, a backdrop of stars and planets in a midnight-blue sky, silk and brocade costumes smothered with embroidery and fur....what a fairy tale!
