As you already know, Ballet West will present Sir Frederick Ashton’s THE DREAM on our first program this fall. Ballet West last performed THE DREAM in the 80s with Bruce Caldwell as Oberon. David Walker, the ballet’s original designer created Ballet West’s production and then went back to the Royal Ballet in England and rebuilt their production to match his Ballet West designs.
Adam Sklute, Pamela Robinson Harris and I met David Heuvel and Cindy Farrimond at the Costume Shop this morning and David toured us through the costumes and wigs. Most of it is still in great shape. David and his staff have to rebuild some of it too.
Costumes of Cobweb and Mustard Seed
As you can see this is a production of pure magic, not to be missed.
