I recently blogged about working with English National Ballet on The Nutcracker. There is so much to say about this Ballet company but in this post I will mostly let the pictures do the talking. I feel they show just how much work and organization goes into such a company.
The shoe room!
Dancers will go through many, many shoes during a production.
The fabric store.
Covered and labelled rails of costumes in storage from ENB's repertoire.
The wardrobe work room
Tutus are stored upside down in purpose made boxes to avoid drooping.
The work area as The Nutcracker was being prepared.
The purpose built sinks for washing tutus, this makes a very awkward job so much easier.
While we were preparing The Nutcracker in Kent the ITVnews filmed a short piece about ENB.
