Edoardo Lelli

Theatre Design MA Student


Originally trained in architecture and interior design at Politecnico di Milano, Edoardo has designed projects for theatre, opera and fashion, and has developed a multidisciplinary approach to team relationship and storytelling. Credits include set, props design for Pericles, Prince of Tyre (Bristol Old Vic – cancelled); production design for Love Song (The Wardrobe Theatre, Bristol – digital performance); a production design proposal for The Cunning Little Vixen (ROH – project) and costume design for Her Naked Skin (Circomedia, Bristol); design for period tailoring projects and La Traviata (BOVTS-project). Edoardo has also assisted Opera designer Robert Innes Hopkins in Der Fledermaus (Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, Saint Louis). He also has a range of experience in portrait painting, technical drawings and model making.

Training at BOVTS set me up with the skillset, confidence and connections for the career I now have as a freelance theatre designer. Max Johns, MA Performance Design Alumni
