Are you ready for a luxurious vision of grandeur and decadence?
The Scandal at Mayerling is a gripping true story set in the Imperial Court, Austria, 1889. A time when clothes were fundamental in defining rank and position. Scottish Ballet is creating 90 resplendent costumes for this new production, each one illustrating a sense of hierarchy and history.
The lavish designs summon a vision of glamour that will transport you back in time. Our Wardrobe Team have sourced around 1,500 metres of the many different sumptuous fabrics required. Now they need to work with teams of specialist makers to sew costumes that are hard-wearing and look luxurious under the stage lighting whilst allowing the dancers to move freely.
Play your part in supporting the costume creations for The Scandal at Mayerling, the third production in our Five in Five Campaign, touring theatres in spring 2022. What a thrill you could have in the audience, spotting the costume you helped to create!
Please consider donating to make this long-awaited production really cause a stir.
For gifts over £40, you can turn your donation into a Christmas gift on behalf of a loved one and we will send them a small piece of fabric from the costumes in time for Christmas!
