Opera Australia is continuing its renewal program, making way for new costumes by clearing out the last of their ‘dead stock’ and putting it all on sale to the public with prices starting as low at $2.
To be held at Opera Australia’s props warehouse in Alexandria on the weekend of 21 – 22 October, more than 2,000 weird and wonderful items will be offered alongside plain and ordinary clothing like shirts and jeans. And it will be a case of first in – best dressed… Literally!
So with Halloween just around the corner, fans of the spooky holiday need look no further… There’s blood-splattered costumes, suits of armour from the middle ages and military style coats, lots of period costumes and amazing hats.
At the other end of the spectrum, there’s plenty of 80’s style dresses and 60’s inspired outfits along with bright and colourful chorus costumes, it all has to go so the prices are crazy cheap. Most of the costume items have been hand crafted for some of Opera Australia’s biggest hits like Otello, but there are also store bought items of everyday clothing that need to be gone.
More than a dozen storage crates will be cleared out in the sale and everything must go. All stock will be on display but there’s no option to try on, no exchanges and no refunds. Cash and credit card facilities will be available.
