Chris de Wilde


Chris is an experienced set and costume designer equally at home with large and small-scale productions.  His large scale theatre and opera commissions include CANDIDE and SWEENEY TODD (Värmlandsoperan, Karlstad, Sweden), NINE (Malmö Musikteater, Sweden), IL TROVATORE (Tbilisi Opera & Ballet Theatre, Georgia), CYBERJAM (Queen’s Theatre) & NIXON’S NIXON (Comedy Theatre) in the West End and EDMUND THE LEARNED PIG (Manchester Royal Exchange Studio).

While he is very happy to create work on a larger scale, he also enjoys the challenge of distilling the essence of a piece when resources are limited, designing regularly for small scale and touring companies. Shows include CROSSINGS (Julie McNamara Productions), TOMORROW MORNING (Landor), CALL ME MADAM (Union Theatre) and STRAKER SINGS BREL (King’s Head).

Chris works regularly with Youth Music Theatre: UK, for whom he has designed eight shows, and is Associate Artist with Krazy Kat Theatre Company, collaborating on seventeen shows to date, including THE WAVING CAT OF JAPAN, A VICTORIAN MIKADO, CLOWNDERELLA and THE VERY MAGIC FLUTE.
