Piet Oudolf
Plantsman and Plant Designer
Piet Oudolf is renowned worldwide for his imaginative garden designs. Most of the plants he uses to furnish those gardens come from the nursery he runs with his wife, Anja, near Arnhem in the Netherlands. There he has assembled a pioneering collection of plants that are dependable, disease-resistant, easy to maintain, and beautiful throughout the year.
Among the gardens Piet has designed are the Dromparken in Enkoping, Sweden; two great borders at the Royal Horticultural Society Gardens at Wisley; and private gardens in various countries. The garden he designed with Arne Maynard for the Chelsea 2000 Flower Show won the Best Garden Award. In 2002, he was asked to design the Gardens of Remembrance at The Battery, New York.
Robert Israel
Set and Costume Designer
An elected fellow of the American Academy of the Arts and Sciences, Robert Israel has created environments for many of the world's great opera companies. For the 1996 world premiere of Catan's Florencia en el Amazonas at the Houston Grand Opera, Israel created the sets which were later seen at Los Angeles and Seattle. Other theater and opera companies he has worked with include the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Vienna Staatsoper, Paris Opera, Bavarian State Opera and English National Opera. His costume drawings for Glass' Satyagraha are part of the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art.
Recent productions include Berg's Lulu in Japan, Britten's Peter Grimes in Zurich, and, at the American Repertory Theatre at Harvard, Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. In 2006, Israel will design a new production of Verdi's Macbeth for Seattle Opera.
