GEORGE TSYPIN OPERA FACTORY: INVISIBLE CITY. Princeton Architectural Press, Inc., New York, 2016. 216 pp. with 184 ills. (164 col.) and 70 reference ills. (61 col.). 24 x 31 cm. ISBN 9781616895242 In English.
Publisher's description: Based in New York City -- in the grit, steel girders, and graffiti of the metropolis -- George Tsypin's Opera Factory creates visions of towering gods, underwater kingdoms, constructivist reveries, skyscraping towers, and earth-bound angels. Tsypin's award-winning designs are produced around the world. This lavishly illustrated monograph introduces Tsypin's designs for twenty productions -- including the musicals Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and The Little Mermaid; operas Oedipus Rex and the Ring Cycle; the opening ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi; Cirque du Soleil's Oasis; and the Seaglass Carousel in Battery Park. Tsypin uses each project as a starting point for meditations on creativity and the fleeting nature of performance that will rivet designers, artists, performers, and anyone interested in the creative process.
