CV

My work includes set and costume design for modern and classical ballet productions worldwide. I studied opera direction at Hamburger Hochschule für Musik und Theater and created in 2006, in the age of 26, my first piece as a set and costume designer for Staatsballett Berlin. The same year I directed my first opera production Carmen by George Bizet for Ensemble Escritura Hamburg. In 2020 I brought new life to my work as a director with The Count of Luxemburg by Franz Lehár for the Estonian National Opera.
