Biography
Doug Fitch

Visual artist, designer, and director Doug Fitch created several productions with the New York Philharmonic, including Ligeti’s Le Grand Macabre; Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen; A Dancer’s Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky; and HK Gruber’s Gloria – A Pig Tale. The Philharmonic later performed Petrushka, one-half of A Dancer’s Dream, on tour at London’s Barbican Centre. Next year Le Grand Macabre will be remounted at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany. Mr. Fitch has also created productions for Los Angeles Opera, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Santa Fe Opera, and Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, and for Bard’s SummerScape Festival. His Tanglewood production of Elliott Carter’s What Next? was filmed and later screened at the Museum of Modern Art.

Doug Fitch directed and designed the original version of Matthew Aucoin’s Orphic Moments at National Sawdust, a production that was remounted at the Salzburg Landestheater. He designed a third version for Master Voices at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater. At National Sawdust he performed a live-animated version of Musorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition with Alessio Bax, later remounted with Inon Barnatan at Town Hall. His cabaret, Doug Fitch’s Art Gallery Variety Show, has appeared at National Sawdust and Maison Francaise at Columbia University.

Mr. Fitch is a co-founder of Giants Are Small, which, in co-production with Universal Music and Deutsche Grammophon, developed Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood an iPad app, CD, and digital album featuring Alice Cooper as narrator and the German National Youth Orchestra. In May 2017 a live version was performed by the National Symphony Orchestra with Mr. Fitch as narrator. 

Doug Fitch’s recent projects include the World Premiere of Daniel Thomas Davis’s opera Six. Twenty. Outrageous at Symphony Space and Pan, created in collaboration with Marcos Balter and Claire Chase, at The Kitchen.
