The Very Last Green Thing

Welsh National Opera will showcase its Youth Opera in The Very Last Green Thing, what is billed as an eco-friendly musical performance, at the Wales Millennium Centre 25–26 May.

The production’s props and costumes consist of recycled materials, many of them previously owned or repurposed from older productions, as Welsh designer Greta Baxter considered from the outset.

Baxter, a recent graduate from Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, follows in the footsteps of previous emerging designers like Gabriella Slade, who designed WNO Youth Opera’s production of Kommilitonen! in 2017 and has since gone on to design for Six: The Musical and The Spice Girls World Tour.
