Frank Gehry to design opera set for Berlin's Staatsoper

The architect downsizes

Celebrated American architect Frank Gehry will be taking on a new smaller scale project than he is used to by creating the stage design for Berlin's Staatsoper Opera company in a production of 'Orfeo ed Euridice'...

Iconic American architect, Frank Gehry, known for his creative architectural masterpieces like the Guggenhaim museum in Bilbao, is set to down scale the scope of his work in a new project with  Berlin's Staatsoper Opera. Gehry will be the stage designer of a new production of the Christoph Gluck opera 'Orfeo ed Euridice' for the German company. The production is set to be a central feature of the company's 2015/2016 season of programming.

This will not be the first time Gehry has put his design expertise to work in the arts sphere. He has engaged in arts projects in the past, including appearing in an episode of The Simpsons and also designing a set for a concert staging of Mozart's Don Giovanni in Los Angeles in 2003. We look forward to seeing the staging the Gehry creatives, and expect it will be a show-stealer.
