Michael Walton

Lighting Designer

Michael Walton made his debut with Pacific Opera Victoria as lighting designer for the April 2012 production of Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda. He returned in February 2013 for Albert Herring, and in 2017 is lighting designer for POV’s production of Jenůfa, directed by Atom Egoyan.

Recent design credits include 13 Seasons with the Stratford Festival, including Guys and Dolls, A Chorus Line, Tartuffe, School for Scandal, Macbeth, Hamlet, Oedipus Rex, King Lear, Othello, Fiddler on the Roof, Henry V, The Tempest; Così fan tutte with Atom Egoyan (Canadian Opera Company); A Word or Two with Christopher Plummer (Center Theater Group, Los Angeles); Anne of Green Gables, Evangeline (Charlottetown); Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (La Jolla Playhouse, California): Julie by Philippe Boesmans, Harper Regan, The Other Place, Venus in Fur, Cruel and Tender (Canadian Stage).

That this production is exquisitely beautiful was clear the instant the curtain rose. The team of Debra Hanson, who designed the set and costumes, along with Michael Walton who set up the lighting created a series of luminous imagery that drew inspiration from the impressionistic works of artist Frida Kahlo … Vivid lighting complimented by subtle use of spots directed the activity on the stage nicely. The lighting designs directed at the floor to help create the impressions of the garden were especially effective.
