Stephen Lawless was Director of Production for the Glyndebourne Touring Opera from 1986 to 1991, where his work culminated in an immensely successful production of ‘Death in Venice’, which was subsequently recorded by the BBC for television and video release. He made his début with the Kirov Opera in Leningrad producing ‘Boris Godunov’ which was broadcast live on British television, the first ever live telecast of an opera from the Soviet Union to the UK. He has directed throughout the world including The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; Glyndebourne Festival; the Vienna State Opera; La Fenice, Venice; the Berlin Staatsoper; The Metropolitan Opera, New York; Chicago; New York City Opera, Los Angeles; San Francisco; Washington, the Hong Kong and New Zealand Festivals and the complete ‘Der Ring des Nibelungen’ for the Nürnberg Opera.
