Set & costume design for Bizet's Carmen at the Royal Albert Hall and O2 Arena. Dir: David Freeman

"The best thing about this production of Carmen happens way before a note of the music is heard. As soon as you enter the cavernous space of the Albert Hall, you are confronted by David Roger's evocative set, which immediately conjures up all the parched claustrophobia of a summer's day in 1920s Seville. With snake-like circular ramp in a beautifully-lit dusty orange colour, he creates a variety of spaces, (including a bull ring and a wonderfully detailed cigarette factory), and with a few bold strokes solves all the problems of a production in the round."
