Pierre-Luc-Charles Cicéri (Saint-Cloud, Hauts-de-Seine, 17 August 1782 – Saint-Chéron, Essonne, 22 August 1868) was a leading French set designer of his era.[1][2]

Cicéri designed the set for the first performance of La belle au bois dormant ("Sleeping Beauty"), which opened on 2 March 1825 at the Théâtre de l'Académie Royale de Musique in Paris. He also designed the sets for a ballet version of Jocko ou le Singe du Brésil ("Jocko or the Monkey of Brazil") by Frédéric-Auguste Blache, with music by Alexandre Piccinni. The ballet was first performed at the Théâtre de la Porte Saint-Martin in Paris on 16 March 1825.

He was awarded a Chevalier of the Légion d'honneur.
