On Sunday 7th July, Victorian Opera Patrons enjoyed afternoon tea and a talk by Victorian Opera's Costume Supervisor, Ross Hall, as he discussed the process of developing and creating costumes for the upcoming production of Sunday in the Park with George. Starting back in January with initial concepts from set and costume designer Anna Cordingley, the costume department has been working to bring the painted characters to life; all the while keeping in mind the requirements of a performing singer. Use of emerging design technology by incorporating digital prints of the scanned painting has enabled the team to create costumes that step out of the painting and onto the stage - literally!
Sunday in the Park with George is showing 20 - 27 July at the Playhouse, Arts Centre Melbourne. Book online or call 1300 182 183.
