Have you ever wanted to own a piece of Royal Opera House history?
14 September 2011 at 12.02pm
Our costume sale takes place later this month at the High House Production Park in Purfleet and is a rare opportunity for the public to buy pieces worn in various Royal Opera House productions, from The Sleeping Beauty to Lohengrin, Don Carlo to Parsifal.
To celebrate this rare event we’re offering an exclusive piece as a prize in a competition…
On offer is a glamorous nymph’s costume from The Sleeping Beauty (as pictured above modelled by dancers from the Royal Ballet behind Darcey Bussell), a cornerstone of the Royal Ballet’s repertory and as such a true piece of Royal Opera House history. The costume was originally worn by Laura McCulloch and Natalie Harrison.
