LES MAMELLES DE TIRÉSIAS

ROYAL CONSERVATOIRE OF SCOTLAND
BY FRANCIS POULENC
DIRECTOR: JAMES BONAS
SET & COSTUME DESIGNER: 
TOM PARIS
MUSICAL DIRECTORMATTHEW KOFI WALDREN
LIGHTING DESIGNER: ROB CASEY

"An inspired creative team gave the many performers a stunning canvas contrasting commedia dell’artetraditions with a dazzlingly bright pastel coloured riot of zany surrealism"

"Tom Paris clearly had enormous fun populating his white set with a series of instantly amusing giant colourful images of animals and lipstick, with bean cans, an oversized milk carton and a stuffed blue macaw among the startling array of props. In this surreal world, a huge white dog puffs on a Magritte pipe, and a stage-high cat has golden fish swimming in front of its nose."

"This staging by James Bonas was perhaps dominated by the wonderfully colourful designs of Tom Paris - beautiful constructs in pastel shades, with sparkly costumes picking up just enough of the light.

It was remarkably stylish, and the complete cast and substantial chorus clearly thoroughly enjoyed themselves."
