Ruth Patton

Working collaboratively to create designs for performance is central to Ruth’s practice.

Her versatility as a designer and educator has enabled her to carve out a unique path of work. Designs have ranged from full scale newly commissioned plays and operas for young people (The Royal National Theatre, Glyndebourne Opera, English Touring Opera, Southwark Playhouse) to community operas with huge casts on vast stages (The Royal Opera House, English National Opera and Opera North).

Ruth’s connection to and love of music has led to designing many operas and music productions for companies such as the City of London Sinfonia/ The Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal Festival Hall, Surrey Opera and Stanley Hall Opera.
