Marty was the most talented designer I have ever had the opportunity to work with, and I am so sad about his passing. Over the past twenty five years, I had the privilege of working on a dozen different projects with him. Marty always pushed those around him to work at a higher level than we thought possible, and the results were stunning costumes with the most interesting details and style lines.
Marty's sketches from over the years grace the walls of the Seattle Opera's costume shop; we treasure these reminders of our time with him.
Marty will be missed more than my words can say.
