Christina stares boldly at the camera, holding onto the collar of her jacket with both hands. It has a thick gold trim. She wears red lipstick and has gray hair.

Christina Poddubiuk

Set & Costume Designer

Christina returns to Victoria for Don Giovanni, and is thrilled to be working with Maria Lamont and Bonnie Beecher, having previously designed La Traviata, Lucia de Lammermoor, Tosca, and Capriccio for POV. Other opera projects include Don Quichotte and Béatrice et Bénédict for the Canadian Opera Company. Most recently (if we don’t include the 2-year hiatus known as Covid-19), she designed The Children at the Belfry, where she has also designed A Doll’s House Part 2, Venus in Fur, and A Tender Thing. Other theatre credits include Private Lives, Julius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet, John Gabriel Borkman, and Phèdre at the Stratford Festival. For the Shaw Festival, she is currently designing costumes for The Importance of Being Earnest, having also designed many other productions such as Pygmalion, Faith Healer, Come Back Little Sheba, A Moon for the Misbegotten, Major Barbara, and The Heiress. The Wars for the Grand Theatre (London), productions for Soulpepper (Toronto) such as The Fantasticks, Travesties, and Mary Stuart; and Love’s Labour’s Lost, Othello, and Much Ado About Nothing for Chicago Shakespeare. She dedicates her work at this time to her Ukrainian ancestors. Libertà!
