She is a visionary and dynamic teacher and writer and her book, What is Scenography? ­ now in its second edition has become a seminal textbook for students. Pamela has recently returned from the Czech Republic where she was commissioned to direct and design the opera The Marriage by Bohuslav Martinu. She will be returning there next year to direct and design Janacek's opera The Excursions of Mr. Broucek. In 2008, she was awarded the OBE for services to drama.
