Peter J. Hall, who died in 2010, designed for such theatrical luminaries as Luciano Pavarotti, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Plácido Domingo, Dame Joan Sutherland, Dame Judi Dench, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Dame Maggie Smith and Elizabeth Taylor. He designed costumes for London’s Royal Opera House, the Vienna State Opera, Milan’s La Scala, Sydney’s Opera Australia, the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, and Los Angeles Opera. He designed costumes (and occasionally, scenery as well) for more than seventy productions for The Dallas Opera, beginning with The Barber of Seville in 1962. His last new production for the company were the costumes for Ariadne auf Naxos in 2006, but his costume designs have been seen on stage at the Winspear in Dallas Opera productions even to this day.
