As the curtain opens, a backdrop of ancient columns is visible through the window of designer, Annemarie Woods.

Irish Examiner

Macbeth (NI Opera)

The biggest shame about Northern Ireland Opera's new Verdi production is that it's finished after only three performancs. ..this production is another memorable landmark for a company that's just four years old. The Times

The Importance of Being Earnest (Opera National de Lorraine)

Annemarie Wood's three-tier cake-stand set brilliantly separates town and country scenes while capturing the libretto's obsession with eating.
