Polish-born Wojciech Dziedzic designs costumes for the opera, the theatre and for stage musicals while at the same time maintaining a successful career as a fashion designer. He trained at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and at the Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design in London—institutions in which he would later teach. He has worked on numerous productions including Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, Zelenka’s Il Serpente di bronzo and Haddad’s A Wintery Spring at the Frankfurt Opera, Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie (directed by Sam Gold) with the Toneelgroep Amsterdam Company (Amsterdam and Broadway), Beethoven’s Fidelio (directed by Alexander Polzin) at the Erl Festival, Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov (directed by Johan Simons), Wolfgang Rihm’s Die Eroberung von Mexico and Ginastera’s Bomarzo (directed by Pierre Audi), Wagner’s Lohengrin (directed by Lukas Hemleb), Maurizio Sotelo’s El público (world premiere production) at the Teatro Real in Madrid, Genet’s Les Bonnes with the Toneelgroep Amsterdam and Katie Mitchell, Pascal Dusapin’s Penthesilea (Pierre Audi and Berlinde De Bruyckere) at La Monnaie in Brussels, and Sophocles’ Oedipus with the Toneelgroep Amsterdam and Robert Icke...
He has worked on numerous productions with Ivo van Hove, both at the theatre (Schiller’s Mary Stuart, Kushner’s Angels in America, Bergman’s Cries and Whispers, Jon Fosse’s And We’ll Never Be Parted, Molière’s The Miser, Alexandre Dumas fils’ La Dame aux camélias, and Arthur Miller’s The Crucible); and at the opera (Tchaikovsky’s Mazeppa at the Berlin Komische Oper, the world premiere production of Wuorinen’s Brokeback Mountain at the Teatro Real in Madrid, Verdi’s Macbeth at the Lyon Opera). Wojciech Dziedzic also collaborated with Thibaud Delpeut on All My Sons (Miller) and A Doll’s House (Ibsen) with the Toneelgroep Amsterdam company, and on Phaedra (Claus), Crave (Sara Kane) and Caligula (Camus) at the Utrecht Theatre. More recently, he created the costumes for Stockhausen’s Aus Licht at the Dutch National Opera in Amsterdam with Pierre Audi and for Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde at La Monnaie in Brussels with Ralf Pleger.
Projects: Thierry Escaich’s Shirine at the Lyon Opera (directed by Richard Brunel).
