Julie Taymor is one of the most imaginative and provocative directors and designers working in the performing arts. Her productions range from musicals and Shakespeare plays to classical operas and films. In this unique volume, award-winning writer Eileen Blumenthal traces Taymor's theatrical apprenticeship and presents many of Taymor's major projects in theatre, opera and film. The numerous pictures include production photos, Taymor's sketches for characters and costumes, and shots of her in rehearsal and constructing puppets and masks. Following the essay, more than twenty productions are lavishly illustrated. Also featured are Taymor's own notes on each production. A new section, introduced by film critic Antonio Monda, includes Taymor's most recent film, "Frida", as well as her forthcoming opera "Grendel" and movie musical "Across the Universe". Altogether this sumptuous book offers a fascinating look at the creative sprit of one of today's leading directors, writers and designers.
