Ustinov Studio


Internationally acclaimed and multi-award winning theatre and opera director Deborah Warner is the new Artistic Director of the Ustinov Studio.

Deborah’s extraordinary talent encompasses theatre of all scales – from legendary Shakespearean productions to grand opera in some of the world’s most famous opera houses, and intimate theatre pieces. She has worked with leading companies and talent world-wide, holding prestigious posts including Resident Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Associate Director of the National Theatre and Associate Director of the Barbican.

The inaugural season got off to a thrilling start with opening productions of Shakspeare’s The Tempest, followed by Phaedra/Minotaur which introduced classical song and contemporary dance to the Ustinov.

The season continues with a new production of one of the earliest operas, Dido & Aeneas (14 October – 5 November), and is completed with a newly commissioned new work, Showmanism!, devised and performed by the uniquely talented Dickie Beau (11 November – 10 December).

Since 2011, the Ustinov Studio has presented highly-acclaimed programmes of world and UK premieres, alongside the best in small-scale touring theatre, comedy, music and dance.
