It's all in the design

Another Pinchgut first ;)

We had our design presentation on Thursday. Wonderful young designer Katren Wood talked us through all the elements - set, costumes, props - that will go towards supporting the amazing music of Cavalli's Giasone. We don't want to give too much away, but words like 'sumptuous', 'luxuriant' and 'beautiful' were getting a real work out. Naturally the navy is going to play a part in all the adventuring, what with so many Argonauts on stage. And our Isifile and Medea will be resplendent in their costumes, as be-fits our two queens.

Behind the scenes we also have a team of researchers currently working out the surface tension of bubbles. Why? Well, you'll just have to come along to find out!
