Case Studies: Our Work

Naturally, we’re extremely proud of the work we produce, from the smallest project to the largest, each deserves the same attention to detail.


Set in the American Wild West during the Californian gold rush, Puccini’s The Girl of the Golden West (La Fanciulla del West) follows the lives of saloon-bar owner Minnie and a community of miners who struggle to cope with the harsh realities of survival in a bleak environment. This is a place where people have put their lives on hold as they place all their hopes on a better future.

Rossini’s last opera brings together the ever topical subject of foreign occupation, as stark and oppressive as a jagged Alpine peak, with sublime moments of uplifting hope and serenity. Though better known for his comedies, Rossini reveals the more serious side of his character with a story that twists, turns and plays with our emotions. This production will see Swiss traditional folk costumes set against stiff, grey Austrian uniforms. The beautifully choreographed ballet sequences add to the contrast.
