In addition to Lyric’s Siegfried, the French lighting designer’s work will be seen in five other new productions this season, among them Michael Jarrell’s Bérénice (world premiere, Opéra National de Paris), Un ballo in maschera (Welsh National Opera), and Manon Lescaut (La Scala). Revivals of other productions will be seen in nine other major European opera houses, among them the Vienna Volksoper and Staatsoper, the Polish National Opera, the Opéra de Lausanne, and the Israeli Opera. Kebour’s most recent work also includes Simon Boccanegra (Flanders Opera), La forza del destino (Vienna State Opera), Faust (Opéra National de Paris), The Magic Flute (Bregenz Festival), and productions for Paris’s Châtelet, and the Mariinsky Theater, among many other houses. Kebour’s non-theatrical work includes designing the 2006 opening and closing ceremonies of the 15th Asian Games in Doha and the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space exhibit “Light Speaks”, a retrospective of world-renowned lighting designers. Kebour has received three Molière Award nominations and one Welsh Theatre Award nomination for best lighting design.
