Dieter Eisenmann first studied classical and contemporary dance in Munich. After engagements at the Landestheater Innsbruck and at the Salzburg and Bregenz Festivals, he became a member of the opera ballet at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich. He has performed in productions by Peter Zadek (Münchner Kammerspiele), Hans Neuenfels, Konstanze Lauterbach and Leander Hausmann (Residenztheater Munich), among others. Following his dance career, he studied stage and costume design with Herbert Kaplmüller at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg. He realised his first stage design in 2010 for Eugen Onegin at the Mozarteumbühne in Salzburg, directed by Eike Gramss. This was followed by La damnation de Faust and Tosca at the Landestheater Passau (director Jonathan Lunn), Herbstkonzert at the Akademie Theater Munich (director Katrin Ackermann) and Zirkusprinzessin at the Musikalische Komödie Leipzig (director Natascha Ursuliak and Beate Vollack). At the Theater St. Gallen, Dieter Eisenmann designed the stage and costumes for the ballet Les Liaisons dangereuses by Matjash Mrozewski and for the opera Eloise directed by Natascha Ursuliak. Most recently, in collaboration with choreographer Beate Vollack, he created the ballet Cinderella at the Graz Opera, the dance piece Nüwürüsütät at St.Gallen Theatre and the festival production Peregrinatio. For Vladimir Malakhov, Dieter Eisenmann created the sets for Coppélia at the Ukrainian State Opera in Kiev and for Swan Lake for the Liaoning Ballet of China.
