Romeo Castellucci

Born in 1960 at Cesena, Italy.
Director and stage, lighting and costume designer Romeo Castellucci is known throughout the world for creating a theatre founded on the totality of the arts and aimed at an integral perception.

He has also written various theoretical essays on directing. His theatre engages in a type of dramaturgy that overturns the primacy of literature, thus becoming a complex and supple form of art, a theatre made of extraordinarily rich images expressed in a language as comprehensible as music, sculpture, painting or architecture.

His stagings are regularly invited to and produced by the most prestigious international theatres, opera houses and festivals, in over fifty countries covering all the continents. Among his most recent creations: The Minister’s Black Veil inspired by Hawthorne’s parable (2016), Jeanne au bûcher by Arthur Honegger (2017), Democracy in America freely inspired by Alexis de Tocqueville (2017),  Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner (2017) and Salomé by Richard Staruss (2018).

Triple award received for the 2018-19 season by Romeo Castellucci for Salomé from the "Oscars" of European Opera, a survey by the German magazine Opernwelt among fifty international music critics: Award to Romeo Castellucci for "Best Show", "Best Director Award", "Best Production Designer Award".
At the end of 2018, the project "Un automne avec Romeo Castellucci" sees the presentation of: The magic flute by Amadeus Mozart in La Monnaie, the opening of the History of oil painting exhibition in Bozar and the latest theatrical creation entitled La vita nuova a Kanal- Center Pompidou, performance who questions the collective destiny and art.

In January 2019 he made his debut at Opera Garnier in Paris with Il primo omicidio by Alessandro Scarlatti.
