Sue Blane
Costume Designer

Having worked with all the major companies in the UK, and many abroad, Sue famously designed the costumes for the original Rocky Horror Show, and, the cult movie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Her costumes for Roman Polanski's musical, Dance of the Vampires, have also reached cult status, in a production with music by Jim Steinman, which premiered in Vienna and transferred to Hamburg. Sue's film credits include costumes for Lady Jane, Absolute Beginners, and a BAFTA nomination for Peter Greenaway's The Draughtsman's Contract.

Opera costume designs currently include Alcina, Carmen, Rosenkavalier, Jonathan Miller's perennial Mikado for the ENO,

David McVicar's fabulous Carmen for Glyndebourne, Keith Warner's hugely successful Lohengrin for the world famous Bayreuth Festival, and most recently Lulu at the New National Theatre, Tokyo.

Previous credits include Disney's Hunchback of Notre-Dame (Berlin): Love for Three Oranges (Opera North/ENO); Three Musketeers (Young Vic); Capriccio (Staatsoper, Berlin); Guys and Dolls (RNT); Into the Woods (Old Vic / West End); Porgy and Bess (Glyndebourne) and La FanciuIla del West, with Placido Domingo (La Scala, Milan).

Sue's many production design credits include The Relapse, voted Best Design by What's On readers, (RNT)., The Nutcracker and Alice in Wonderland, (English National Ballet); Midsummer Night's Dream (Royal Dramaten Theatre, Stockholm and RSC; Cabaret (Donmar Warehouse); Sylvia (Birmingham Royal Ballet); King John, The Learned Ladies, Antony and Cleopatra (RSC); Barber of Seville (Scottish Opera); The Duenna, Thieving Magpie (Opera North); Christmas Eve (ENO) and Lee Miller (Minerva Chichester).
