Intelligence Curtain Up

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Olivier Awards, the V&A’s Curtain Up exhibition showcases material from award-winning stage productions in a journey through London and New York’s theatre history. The theatrical experience, by acclaimed stage designer Tom Piper and RFK Architects, starts with elaborate costume designs from the Phantom of the Opera and ends with an immersive recreation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time. Visitors are also invited to admire great costume designs from a variety of productions, from the Lion King to Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake. There is even a chance to view the intricate costume of Joey from War Horse ahead of it’s closing in the West End. A highlight of the exhibition is the sound board display where you can experience the role of a sound technician for the musical Hairspray. Curtain Up offers a fun and interesting celebration of theatrical production, incorporating every role from sound and light technicians to marketing posters and production budgets. If you’re a fan of the theatre, then you’ll definitely enjoy the chance to reminisce and relive a selection of the leading productions that have graced the stages of London and New York.
