Ľudmila Várossová

L’udmila Várrosová was born in Bratislava. She studied at the School of Applied Arts, marionette theatre at the Academy of Music and Theatre in Prague, and set and costume design at the Bratislava Music Academy. She has worked as a freelance costume design in theatre, television and film, creating costumes for more than one hundred theatre and two hundred television plays. Her designs bear her unmistakable hallmark, comprising sophisticated references and witty updates of period elements combined with modern creative processes. In the nineties she began to concentrate on music theatre, mainly within the context of projects directed by Jozef Bednárik (e.g. the two collaborated at the Prague National Theatre on a staging of Romeo and Juliet in 1994, Carmen in 1999), and has worked with Miroslav Fischer and Pavel Smolík, as well as with the choreographer Libor Vaculík (the two collaborated at the National Theatre on the ballets Psycho/Little Mr Friedemann 1993 and Some Like it Hot...1994). L’udmila Várossová has created designs for dramas, operas, ballets and music theatre. Of the last we would mention Don Giovanni, Andrea Chénier, Popoluška, The Kiss, Falstaff, The Golden Clock, and Rossini’s The Daughter of the Regiment for the Slovak National Theatre. Musicals include Joan of Ark for the Prague company Ta Fantastika, the musical Gypsies Go to Heaven at the New Theatre Bratislava, or Zorba the Greek for the Andrej Bagar Theatre in Nitra. The creative designs of L’udmila Várossová have been exhibited many times, both as part of collaborations and on their own. Update: 2004
