Back stage at the opera house

It seems I can still access blogger today so thought I would share some more pics with you, this time of a back stage tour of the opera house. It was all very interesting but the costume storage rooms were fabulous, a little girls dressing- up paradise!
                                                                     Tu-tu anyone??

                                                              Cossack hats?

                                 Ballet shoes waiting to have the wooden bits put in the toes.

                    Wooden shoe lasts...........I would have loved a couple of those to alter!

                                                                     Large set storage.

Could not resist taking this know how most of us work with sheets of paper or a pad underneath our work and it collects all the extra ink/paint etc that strays over the sides of the card? Well it seems they do the same in the theatre! This room is where the sets are painted and the whole floor was covered in huge sheets of paper with lots of evidence of recent work!

What a fascinating tour. I bet the UK theatres don't allow that sort of access.
Love that floor, what great colours!
