The Linbury Prize for Stage Design has announced the arts organisations with whom the finalists will be working: The Opera Group alongside the Lyric Hammersmith, Watermill Theatre, Newbury and The Royal Opera House’s Linbury Studio Theatre.
Twelve finalists get the chance to work with the four professional production companies and exhibit their work at the National Theatre. Four of the 12 will then win a commission to realise their designs with the participating companies, and one designer is awarded the overall winner’s title.
In 2008 designer Rhys Jarman (pictured) won the opportunity to design for our production of Varjak Paw.
Applications open in May and close on 11 July. This year’s finalists will be announced in July, with the overall winner announced in November.
