    Didn’t they just put up a new one?

    • William James Dundas says:

      I have attended performances last November and last weekend. I noticed that the proscenium curtains were claret. Historically, in my experience, they were beige.

      The artwork under discussion is applied to the safety curtain. It is replaced at the beginning of the season and remains for one year.
