Backstage at the National Ballet and Opera in Amsterdam
Last Tuesday I had the pleasure of being given a tour of the labyrnth that is the Dutch National Opera and Ballet and visualising the inner workings of its talented speciality artists and workers after hours. One of the most unique aspects of the Dutch National Opera and Ballet is that is it one of the few theaters that produces all it's props, costumes, sets, wigs ect on site. Here's just a little peek at what we saw.
(hat making, wigs, props, costume, shoes, dying cloth ect.)
