Biography
Bengt Gomer

Swedish set designer and director Bengt Gomér works in opera, dance, theater, and other art projects. He studied the history of art and philosophy at Lund University, and has worked in set and lighting design at theaters throughout Europe since 1990. He made his directorial debut at Sweden’s Dalhalla Opera with Puccini’s Turandot in the summer of 2015, and recently he served as dramaturge for New York–based composer João MacDowell’s new opera, The Seventh Seal, based on Ingmar Bergman’s film of the same name.

Mr. Gomér has collaborated with directors including Staffan Aspegren, Sam Brown, Charlotte Engelkes, Mick Gordon, Sofia Jupiter, Håkan Lindhé, Åsa Melldahl, Mellika Melouani Melani, Nils Spangenberg, and Olivier Tambosi. His upcoming projects include working as set and lighting designer for Hummel, Barbarino, and Hauser’s operetta Ludwig II, sehnsucht nach dem Paradies at Theater Regensburg in Germany, and a staged version of Beethoven’s Fidelio with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra on tour throughout Europe. Both projects are directed by Sam Brown.

Upcoming next season is the world premiere of the opera Bly by Icelandic composer Karólina Eiriksdóttir and Swedish librettist Ann-Sofie Bárány, in collaboration with director Mellika Melouani Melani. The piece will tour Sweden with the Pitea Chamber Opera.
