Art example: David Hockney (in stage design) "The Rakes Progress"
performed at Glyndebourne Festival Opera, 1975
David Hockney did a lot of stage design. I am inspired by theatres, and Hockney's sets where beautiful for this opera. I love the simplicity of the line drawings. They are magical and look like a pop up book. I think his work translates well to the stage. I've chosen this piece as I am constantly inspired by Hockney's work and also feel that theatre and opera is an important feature to my country.
