Constance Hoffman makes her Seattle Opera debut with Handel’s Julius Caesar (Giulio Cesare in Egitto). Hoffman worked with director Julie Taymor designing costumes for the world premiere of Elliott Goldenthal’s Grendel for Los Angeles Opera and Lincoln Center Festival and for Goldenthal’s Green Bird, for which she received a Tony nomination and an Outer Critics Circle Award. Hoffman’s many productions for Glimmerglass Opera and New York City Opera include Handel’s Acis and Galatea; Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio; Chabrier’s Étoile; Puccini’s Tosca, Madama Butterfly, and Fanciulla del West; Britten’s Paul Bunyan; and Jack Beeson’s Lizzie Borden. Hoffman has designed for Houston Grand Opera and Florida Grand Opera, San Francisco Opera, Minnesota Opera, Portland Opera, Virginia Opera, and Opera Theatre of Saint Louis. Abroad, she has worked with Tel Aviv and New Israeli Operas, Bayerische Staatsoper, Oper Frankfurt, and the Tokyo Festival. Last fall, she designed costumes for Richard Strauss’s Salome for Lithuanian National Opera. Her designs for Wagner’s Tannhäuser will be used in Tokyo, Paris, and Barcelona.
