Two lighting designers involved in recent Royal Opera House productions have won Knight of Illumination awards. The awards celebrate outstanding achievements in the field of lighting design across television, concerts and theatre.
Lucy Carter was named best lighting designer in the Dance category for her contribution to Wayne McGregor’s Woolf Works. Carter has lit many productions at the Royal Opera House, many of which have been choreographed by Wayne McGregor. Carter will return in 2016 to work with McGregor again, on a new one-act ballet for The Royal Ballet.
Carletti has worked for Europe's top opera houses – including Vienna State Opera where he designed a staging of Don Carlos, and La Scala, Milan where he recently worked on a production of Nabucco. Audiences will once again be able to see his work at Covent Garden in the forthcoming new production of Cavalleria rusticana / Pagliacci.
The award ceremony was held on Sunday 4 October at the Troxy in London. Winners were selected by a panel of judges made up from those within the lighting industry.
Woolf Works returns to The Royal Opera House in 2016/17. Tickets will be available soon.
