Deborah Warner Delivers her Cameron Mackintosh Inaugural Lecture

Deborah Warner delivered her Inaugural Lecture as the Cameron Mackintosh Visiting Professor of Contemporary Theatre on Wednesday 16 October 2019 at the College.

Deborah gave an incredibly engaging lecture, featuring insights from her extensive career in theatre, installation and opera, followed by a question and answer session with the audience. The lecture, entitled Changing Directions – Journeys in Theatre, Opera and Installation is now available as a podcast, which you can listen to on the University Podcasts website here.

Deborah joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1987 as Resident Director, and from 1989-1997, she was an Associate Director at the National Theatre. Over her career, Deborah has worked extensively in the fields of theatre, opera and classical music. Examples of her work as a Director include the plays Electra, King Lear and Richard II; and the operas The Turn of the Screw for the Royal Opera, which won the Evening Standard and South Bank Awards; Dido and Aeneas and La Traviata for the Vienna Festival. We are delighted that she joined us as the Cameron Mackintosh Visiting Professor of Contemporary Theatre.
