WAFTA @ The Ballet : Wardrobe Tour
There are just a few places left for this Friday's tour of the WA Ballet wardrobe and it's wonderful textile delights!
The West Australian Ballet Centre is situated on the historical site of the former Blind Institute in Maylands. The history of the building site dates back to 1897 when the Victoria Institute and the Industrial School for the Blind was developed as a part of the celebrations for the 60th year of Queen Victoria’s reign.
This magnificent building has become a symbol that illustrates Perth’s short history. With its high ceilings, rustic wooded floors, classical charm and character, the building sets a perfect tone for the West Australian Ballet. The building’s disposition provides the artistic team with a creative and innovative backdrop to aid in the creation of world class productions.
The WAB Centre also houses a large collection of stunning costumes that have been seen in productions both in Perth and around Australia.
We have been given an opportunity for a small group of WAFTA members to take a close up view of the materials, techniques and details that make up ballet costumes.
To get your place in this group you will need to log in with your email address and then register your place. All tickets for this event are $15.
