Casanova Costume Appeal
Costumes are essential to bringing any production to life and it is in this spirit that we launched a special Costume Appeal ahead of the world première of Casanova in March 2017.
There were over 60 individually crafted opulent powdered wigs and 120 dazzling masks to be made, over 800 pointe shoes to be dyed, and hundreds of metres of ribbons, silk bows, frills and rosettes required. Our Set & Costume Designer Christopher Oram and Northern Ballet’s Wardrobe team certainly had their work cut out!
You too played your part by helping to raise an incredible £7,222, a total that would not have been possible without the generous support of:
