Olivier Py (born July 24, 1965 in Grasse, Alpes-Maritimes) is a French stage director, actor and writer.
In 1997, Py became director of the Centre Dramatique National d'Orléans. In 2007, he became director of the Théâtre de l'Odéon.
Py describes himself as Catholic and homosexual.
He is known for his emphasis on Catholic and homoerotic themes.
Since the early 2000s, Py has increasingly devoted himself to the opera.
His productions of La Damnation de Faust, Tannhäuser and Tristan und Isolde, all in Geneva, have generally been well received.
In March 2008, he debuted at the Paris Opéra. On this occasion he stated to a French magazine (Diapason, March 2008) that he "would not be done staging operas until [he] did Wagner's Ring and Parsifal".
