Since 1981, Romeo Castellucci has directed numerous productions as an author, a director, a set, lighting and costume designer and a sound engineer.
He is recognized the world over for creating theatre that integrates all the arts with the aim of engendering an overall perception. He has written several essays on stage direction theory, tracing the development of his own theatrical style. His productions are characterised by dramatic lines that are not subject to the primacy of literature, but which make theatre a physical and complex art, rich in imagery. This leads to the creation of a language which can be understood as easily as music, sculpture, painting and architecture. His productions are performed regularly at the world’s most prestigious theatres and festivals. He made his Paris Opera debut in 2015 with a piercing production of Moses und Aron, which struck audiences by its stylized beauty, its powerful, almost ritualistic imagery and the black and white dialectic which reflected the moral conflict and the difficulty expressing and revealing what is at the very core of Schönberg’s work. This season, he returns to the Paris Opera for the production of Alessandro Scarlatti’s Il Primo Omicidio.
