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. Le Grand Macabre was remounted at Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie in May 2019. He has also created productions for Los Angeles Opera, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Santa Fe Opera, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, and Bard’s SummerScape Festival. His Tanglewood production of Carter’s What Next? was screened at The Museum of Modern Art.

Mr. Fitch directed and designed Matthew Aucoin’s Orphic Moments at National Sawdust, later remounted at Salzburg’s Landestheater and with Master Voices at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater. At La Jolla Summerfest, he performed a live-animated version of Musorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition with Inon Barnatan, and he directs Mark Neikrug’s A Song by Mahler in the 2019–20 season. Mr. Fitch’s cabaret, Doug Fitch’s Art Gallery Variety Show, has appeared at National Sawdust in Brooklyn and at Columbia University’s Maison Française.

He 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 narrated by Mr. Fitch.

Recent highlights include Los Angeles Opera’s remounting of Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel, Pùnkitititi: Breakfast Included for Mozart Woche 2020 with the Salzburg Marionette Theater, and Pan in collaboration with Marcos Balter and Claire Chase.
