Production Gallery: Patrice Caurier and Moshe Leiser at the Royal Opera House

Lavish images from the directorial duo's Covent Garden productions

As co-directors of opera, Patrice Caurier and Moshe Leiser's fidelity to each other's artistic vision is one thing. Their devotion to Rossini is also relatively unusual. Their loyalty to and faith in their designers is almost as deep. In this ravishing set of photographs, memorialising five of their productions at the Royal Opera House, the set designs are all by Christian Fenouillat, costume designs are by Agostino Cavalca and lighting is by Christophe Forey. Click on the images to view them. Read theartsdesk Q&A with Caurier and Leiser.
