A new opera for family audiences, this was a small scale staging at St Georges Bristol with a tight budget. The focus was to costume the 12 performers on stage, as the opera's characters metamorphise into many different characters and animals. My fee was inclusive of designing a community art project that would be developed at the creative participatory schools workshops which could be displayed at the venue.

The show's design focussed on the language of metamorphosis using everyday clothing, fabrics and textiles.
