about david lampard

David is an award-winning director, production designer and writer. His work is consistently praised for its creativity, playfulness and dark originality.

His work has appeared in many festivals, including the Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival and the Adelaide Festival Centre’s Something On Saturday program.

Between 2014 and 2015, David was an emerging artist with State Opera SA, directing and designing a string of workshops, as well as four one act operas. He has since directed and designed two new mainstage productions for this company – Die Fledermaus and The Magic Flute.
