Based in New York City—in the grit, steel girders, and graffiti of the metropolis—George Tsypin’s Opera Factory creates visions of towering gods, underwater kingdoms, constructivist reveries, skyscraping towers, and earth-bound angels. Tsypin’s award-winning designs are produced around the world.
This lavishly illustrated monograph introduces Tsypin’s designs for twenty productions—including the musicals Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and The Little Mermaid; operas Oedipus Rex and the Ring Cycle; the opening ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi; Cirque du Soleil’s Oasis; and the Seaglass Carousel in Battery Park. Tsypin uses each project as a starting point for meditations on creativity and the fleeting nature of performance that will rivet designers, artists, performers, and anyone interested in the creative process.
