Are you the next Vivienne Westwood? Do you have an eye for marketing and graphic design? Can you imagine what a Parisian street looked like in 1830? If so, we've got an exciting chance for you to create, develop and showcase your designs for the opera La bohème.
We’re giving students of Skills Academy Founder Colleges the opportunity to submit entries for one of five design areas. You can choose from costume, marketing, make up and wigs, online educational resource or set design. You could build a model box recreating a scene from the opera, redesign a costume using period techniques and materials or research 19th century make up design for a specific character.
If you’re feeling inspired to create something unique, watch our trailer and make sure you enter our exclusive competition by the 23rd February 2012.
