Kaspar Glarner works regularly at Oper Frankfurt, most recently on the highly successful world premiere of Arnulf Herrmann's Der Mieter / The Tenant at the beginning of the season, and returns in 2018/19 for a new double bill: The Medium / Satyicon. He designed the sets for Vincent Boussard's productions of Ezio and Adriana Lecouvreur – which is being revived at the end of this season – and costumes for Keith Warner's productions of Death in Venice, Lear and Falstaff. He designed sets for Keith Warner's productions of Volo di notte / Il prigioniero in Frankfurt, Die Frau ohne Schatten in Hamburg, Katja Kabanová at the Theater an der Wien and costumes for Simon Boccanegra and Tannhäuser in Straßburg, Elektra in Prague and San Francisco, Die Teufel von Loudun/The Devil of Loudun in Copenhagen and Warsaw and Otello at the Royal Opera House in London. He worked with Johannes Erath on Hoffmans Erzählungen / The Tales of Hoffmann in Bern, Aida at Cologne Opera, Lohengrin in Graz and, most recently, the world premiere of Joby Talbot's Everest at Theater Hagen. Kaspar Glarner also works regularly with Walter Sutcliffe (productions have included Owen Wingrave and Reimann's Die Gespenstersonate / The Ghost Sonata at Oper Frankfurt, Rigoletto in Santiago de Chile and Tiefland in Toulouse). He recently enjoyed great success with Mayuzumi's Kinkakuiji in Strassburg and Der feurige Engel / The Fiery Angel in Warsaw (which goes to the 2018 Aix en Provence Festival). Future plans include designing the costumes for Król Roger at the Royal Opera in Stockholm.
