Theatre Art Exhibition

There was an exhibition of Theatre Art and Costume Design at the St Petersburg Gallery in Mayfair, as I mentioned in my monthly roundup. I went there and clicked away. What with the lighting and reflections, I’m not overly pleased with the images, but anyway, here’s a flavour of what was on display.

This is Alexander Golovin’s stage design for The Nightingale.
