Jenny the Sealyham Terrier costume.
Featured in Higgledy Piggledy Pop, part of a 2 part opera alongside Where The Wild Things Are – by Oliver Knussen, Directed and Designed by Netia Jones.
I was asked to make Soprano Lucy Shaufer look like Jenny from Maurice Sendak’s beautifully illustrated Higgledy Piggledy Pop. Director Netia Jones wanted the costume as accurate to the illustration as possible. A lot of structuring was needed to help alter Lucy’s natural proportions.
The opera was performed as a double bill with an operatic interpretation of Sendak’s famous book, Where the Wild Things Are. It was performed at 2 venues over 2012.
