Northern Ballet Theatre is delighted that Tim Mitchell has been nominated for a Knights of Illumination Award for his lighting designs for David Nixon’s Hamlet. The awards recognise the outstanding contribution to live performance by Lighting Designers and Tim Mitchell’s work for Hamlet was cited for its taste and restraint when so much was going on in the piece.


Tim has been nominated in the dance category alongside Lucy Carter for Chroma at the Royal Opera House and Katharine Williams for I am Falling at the Gate Theatre.


Peter Mumford, who will be working with Cathy Marston on Northern Ballet Theatre’s forthcoming production of A Tale of Two Cities, was nominated for his lighting designs for the drama production The Hothouse.


Also nominated is Paul Pyant for his work on the Lord of the Rings musical and the opera Minotaur at the ROH. Paul has designed lighting for a number of Northern Ballet Theatre productions including Romeo & Juliet and A Christmas Carol.


The awards, which are supported by Clay Paky, will be awarded in association with the Association of Lighting Designers and the Society of Television Lighting Designers at the annual Association of British Theatre Technicians dinner on June 11th 2008.
