    Stefano Poda

    In his search for aesthetic and conceptual unity, the artistic work of Stefano Poda always encompasses direction, set design, costume design, lightning and choreography in a personal seal founded on a visionary, multi-level imprint balanced between ancient images and contemporary art. He has developed a language that is understandable in the same way as music, sculpture, painting and architecture can be.

    His Faust at the Teatro Regio of Torino in 2015, co-production with Israeli Opera of Tel Aviv and Opéra of Lausanne (Unitel Classica, DVD, BLU-RAY, C Major Entertainment), has been screened as an opera film with great success in movie theaters around the world.
