Our Technical Theatre students got one step closer to their dream of winning the Royal Opera House Design Challenge – a hugely prestigious national competition for budding set and costume designers – when they exhibited their work at a special event in College on 7 February.

The talented students are hoping to repeat the success of two years ago, when a Lewisham Southwark College Tech Theatre student was awarded as winner.

The design competition is run by the Royal Opera House in partnership with Creative and Cultural Skills, and challenges each student to take on the role of either set designer or costume designer. This year, entrants had to decide on a director’s vision of the classic 19th century opera Madame Butterfly, developing ideas for the re-imagining of the opera in a time or location well known to us today. The work forms part of the Level 3 Technical Theatre Arts UAL Diploma course.

The students’ entries, which tutor Ian Shillito describes as “current and clever”, will now be judged internally and a shortlist (one applicant from each discipline) will be put forward for the next stage of judging at the Royal Opera House.

The overall winners in each category will get the chance to exhibit their work and attend a special day at the Royal Opera House, including a backstage tour and performance.
