Set & costume design for Puccini's opera at the Royal Albert Hall. Directed by David Freeman.

"David Freeman and his designer David Roger have provided Gubbay with his first uncompromising artistic success. Their production risks much and goes for broke." Evening Standard
"The triumph of the production, responsively directed and skilfully drilled by David Freeman, is David Roger's floating world set, consisting of wood, water, paper lanterns and cherry blossom... By giving a clear space in which the private drama can be enacted, the production achieves a focus too often absent in arena opera." The Observer
"David Roger's set is nothing short of magnificent." Metro
