English National Opera – Idomeneo by Mozart
We have a new customer and that excites me. Their clothing could not be Fairtrade due to their very specific requirements which is a shame – but it’s just not possible yet.
The English National Opera are performing “Idomeneo” at London Coliseum and we are supplying the costumes. A new one for us – costumes. It is a very contemporary opera so the performers will be wearing suits, shirts, and blouses which we have supplied. I have had very little involvement in this order Jenny has worked hard sending samples, and exchanging goods until the opera company was happy with everything.
I am excited about this. I have never been to the opera and I feel a trip to the Coliseum coming on for all of us at Cotton Roots. I am hoping to get some photographs from the trip and will post them on our blog! We are of course still using manufacturers who ethically make our garments.
So if you go along to “Idomeneo” in the summer look out for our uniforms. We will be there!
This link will let you listen to osme of the music and an interview with the conductor. Take a look.
