Australian Soprano Claire Lyon has had the unique experience of starring in what has remained as the only major theatre production, of any kind, still running in the world. Her role of Christine Daae in the World Tour of The Phantom of the Opera has continued to run in Seoul, South Korea amid the COVID-19 pandemic, thanks to Korean Government’s quick response, tracing and tracking methods and the commonplace practice that is mask wearing in both theatres and in everyday life.
After making mask-wearing part of her everyday routine, Claire found herself wanting to find a product that is still safe to wear, but more eco and face-friendly! With some guidance from family and friends, The Masque Co. was in full swing, manufacturing, en masse, just outside of Seoul, while still performing in the evening!
Claire’s masks, aptly named The Masque Co. are designed in Melbourne and made with precision and care in Seoul. The masks are made from the highest quality 4 way stretch fabric, have an antibacterial activity of 99.9% and a particle penetration efficiency around 20% higher than many cotton masks on the market.
Thanks to The Masque Co. Arts Review has been offered two (2) packs of 3 Masks to giveaway.
