This is an exceptional opportunity to develop an outcome in response to a Royal Opera House brief and provides a great link to employability. Fay Fullerton Head of Costume at The Royal Opera House, has chosen the following opera ‘Alice Underground’ and ballet ‘Alice’ for this year’s ROH Prize theme.
You are to choose either opera or ballet, select and research a character then develop and create a fully finished costume. This costume will be judged by professionals from the Royal Opera House.
I decided to focus on The White Rabbit character from ballet ‘Alice’, I wanted to turn what is known as a typical male character into female by making an adult stretch tutu.
