Herbert Charles Senn, noted Broadway set designer, dead at 78

By Richard Dyer, Globe Staff, 8/15/2003

Herbert Charles Senn, noted set designer for Broadway, the Opera Company of Boston, and the Cape Playhouse, died at his home in Yarmouth Port Wednesday after a brief illness. He was 78; and in his last days, he was surrounded by his collaborator of six decades, designer Helen Pond; his dog, Lucky; and friends.

Senn and Pond met as students at Columbia University nearly 60 years ago and worked together throughout their careers. They designed more than 50 operas for Sarah Caldwell and the Opera Company of Boston, and more than 350 plays for the Cape Playhouse, where their demanding schedule required a new production each week of a 10-week season between 1956 and 1994.

They designed the Boston Ballet's "Nutcracker" with its vast Christmas tree; with one major refurbishment and the collaborators' annual attention, it has held the stage and delighted audiences for 25 seasons.
