ELAINE TYLER-HALL started her career as a dancer, and then worked as a dance teacher, choreographer and Benesh Movement notator, subsequently assisting choreographers and directors on dance and opera productions. She still enjoys the opportunity to choreograph - work that fits in well with her career as a director.

She has also worked on a great number of TV productions and films, including the very popular Shakespeare in Love.

As assistant and staff director she has worked for many opera companies: Royal Opera House Covent Garden, English National Opera, Scottish Opera, Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Bayerisches Staatsoper Munich, Opernhaus Zurich, and the Kammeroper Vienna.

Her own choreography in opera includes La Fedelta Premiata (Garsington), The Jacobin (Scottish Opera), The Greek Passion (ROH) and Benvenuto Cellini (Zurich Opernhaus).

Her work has taken her to New York to assist on the revival of ENO’s production of Orpheus and Eurydice (New York City Opera), to Venice, Milan and Seville for The Cunning Little Vixen (La Fenice, La Scala and Teatro de la Maestranza), to Boston for Orfeo (Handel and Haydn Society) and to Zurich Opernhaus for Semele.

As well as her free-lance work, she is currently a full-time staff director for English National Opera where she was Revival Director for Tosca as part of their opening season after refurbishment of the London Coliseum, and for their renowned production of Rigoletto.

She has recently directed La finta giardiniera for the Kammeroper in Vienna, and for Psappha, the Manchester-based contemporary music group, she has directed The Soldier’s Tale, and Peter Maxwell Davies’ Vesalii Icones, premiering in Buenos Aires.

Future plans include directing two newly commissioned music-theatre pieces for Psappha.
