Royal Opera House Bow Street London WC2E 9DD (Insert School Address) January 2019 Dear Designer, My name is Kevin O’Hare and I am the Director of The Royal Ballet. I’ve heard that you have been learning about the story of Romeo and Juliet at school, and that you’ve had some interesting ideas about how you might design the set for the Royal Opera House stage. I am writing to ask you to take part in my Design Challenge, where school children like you all over the country will be designing and making a model box for a scene from Romeo and Juliet. Follow my design brief carefully, as the school with the winning entry will be invited to see Romeo and Juliet performed by The Royal Ballet and have a backstage tour of the Royal Opera House! Director’s DesignBrief You’ll need to produce a sketch book showing your creative ideas for Romeo and Juliet- I hear that you have made a start on that already. At the end of the project, I’d like you to make your design in a model box. In order to be a finalist and have a chance at winning the competition, your design must: • Be the correct scale for the ballet dancers • Be practical- the dancers need to be able to get on and off the stage! • Be exciting and original • Tell a story Remember - real Designers will try out lots of ideas before they choose the best one. It’s important that you play around with your design ideas and experiment with materials. I’ll need to be able to see that you’ve done this by looking through your sketch book, for you to have a chance at winning the competition. Your sketch book is every bit as important as your finished model box. The very best of luck to you all. I can’t wait to see your designs and choose the winner. Yours sincerely, Kevin O’Hare
