    This is a better source :) Weibo seems to not let you view much content via the www protocol, but will under the tw…

    Just going to also add a permalink for the dressing gown and do a link for the blue dress because OMG there are photos of the back of the dress.

COMING SOON: Interview with Phantom World Tour Wardrobe Head Eugene TitusWe talk about quick fixes, the fate of old costumes, working with actors, the ‘funnest’ costumes, getting into the business and so much more. 
Interview will be posted at http://www.facebook.com/potoworldtour Will alert when it’s up!
(Shout-out to viscountess and operafantomet who I both bugged for questions! Thank you!)

Interview posted here!

Missed the opportunity to ask something ;) I kind of am obsessed by the WT blue dress (ever since 1994!) and the underskirt full of pleats. While silk holds a pleat quite well I know that dress alone must be a total time sink for wardrobe.
Some questions were answered: the fixation on historically appropriate details- it’s really obvious to me (the blue dress stands out not only in the production but against all the other interpretations as the most historically close) so it’s nice to know that was the intent :) 
Speaking of the blue dress, I found an old page from my old website where I dissected the costume. I never kept it up as I used scans from my books. However, I now have enough links and hooray for museums for sharing as they often include internal views of extant gowns now as well.

neimhaille Apologies, I wasn’t able to collate questions for this one. The Interview was a bit short notice so I only got to ask viscountess and operafantomet. That said, I would like to see if I can get in touch with Eugene again to ask some follow-up questions. No promises yet but would love to do it. I’ll let you and everyone know if it’s a possibility. :)

  • Anonymous ASKED:
    So when they say "World Tour", do they mean Asia? And the cast is not from all over the world, but Australia? I'm a little confused.

    operafantomet:

    It depends on how you interpret it. The World Tour has also frequently been called the Asia Pacific Tour and the Australasian Tour, which tells that its main area is Asia and Australia. 

    But: the World Tour got its name when the first South African production opened back in 2004. They traveled from South Africa to China, and continued to South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, back to South Africa and South Korea, The Philippines, Thailand etc. Future stops includes Turkey. So though they don’t tour the US (which has always had its own tours) and Europe (where there’s several sit-down productions), the tour has covered three continents and as such I think the “World Tour” label is deserved. 

    As for the cast, it’s a lot more nationalities than Australian! Depending on the season, they’ve had Swedes (Anders Sohlman), Americans (Brad Little, Tina Walsh, Kristi Holden, Emilie Lynn), Hawaiian (Ian Jon Bourg), South Africans (Thabiso Masemene, Jason Ralph, Anthony Downing), South Koreans (Jee-hyun Noh), Brits (Cat Lane, Eleanor Waite, Rachel Horn), Kiwis (Andrea Creighton), Australians (Claire Lyon, Nadia Komazec), Philippines (Dondi Ong) and Dutch (Ernst van Looy) - and this is just from the top of my head. I’m sure that if I studied the current cast list closer, I’d find more. In my opinion, this is a true World Tour cast, representing most continents.

    Just look at the list of principals: 

    Phantom: Brad Little (US) 
    Christine: Claire Lyon (Australia) 
    Christine alt: Kristi Holden (US) 
    Raoul: Anthony Downing (South Africa) 
    Carlotta: Andrea Creighton (New Zealand) 
    Firmin: Ernst van Looy (The Netherlands) 
    André: Jason Ralph (South Africa) 
    Madame Giry: Tina Walsh (US) 
    Meg Giry: Eleanor Waite (UK)

    What do you all make from this? I’m not sure why Phantom is in the list here and why no mention of the recent 2011/2012 production has been made.
