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.


George Tsypin, born in Kazakhstan, is an influential American stage designer, sculptor, and architect. His awards include an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Set Design and an Obie Award for Sustained Excellence of Set Design.
