Ralph Koltai, internationally renowned designer for the stage, has raised theatre design to the status of an art. This book surveys Koltai's career, illustrating key stage designs such as Metropolis, one of his best known works, and examining his unquestionable influence on the performing arts in Great Britain.

An acknowledged innovator, Koitai has designed over 200 theatre, musical, opera and ballet productions worldwide during his career of almost fifty years, and has worked with some of the greatest theatrical companies in the world including the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre, English National Opera, Covent Garden Royal Ballet, the Stockholm Opera and the Tokyo Bunkamura.

This impressive volume includes contributions from some of the leading theatre directors working today, as well as interviews with Koltai himself in which he discusses his relationship with directors and the evolution of his designs. This book will stand as a tribute to one of the most innovative stage designers working in the performing arts in recent years.e
