Our sheepskin's debut on stage at English National Opera!

We were very excited when the English National Opera got in touch a few months ago, looking for a large sheepskin to feature in their forthcoming production of Wagner's Tristan and Isolde.

This epic drama of ill-fated love, is one of the best loved operas written by the German composer. Based on a medieval legend, it’s a romantic tragedy of love and death, told through sublime music. It lasts over five hours and explores the great themes of love, death and loyalty.

The Fabulous Fleece Company supplied the English National Opera with a Herdwick Quad sheepskin, to be worn around the shoulders of one of the characters.

We've not been able to get a clear shot of the fleece in action, but think we might be able spy it on the stage in the scene below!

Tristan and Isolde is playing at the London Coliseum for 8 performances – June 9, 15, 22, 29 at 5pm and June 19, 26 & July 2, 9 at 3pm.
