Opera Australia’s Extraordinary Costume & Prop Sale

Fancy dress is about to get fancier.

Get your very own piece of opera finery when Opera Australia opens the doors to the Alexandria storehouse for an extraordinary Costume and Prop sale.

You can strut your stuff in one of thousands of pieces made by hand in Opera Australia’s famed costume department. Walk like an Egyptian, swagger in military uniform or pirouette in period dress (from just about any period of history).

This is next level op-shopping. Except instead of picking through high street brands you might pick up a piece of couture. And any suspicious blood stains were painted by hand in our art department. You’ll be the envy of friends and strangers at future parties.

Plus, we’re selling off hundreds of props from retired productions, including vintage army beds, sculptures, sets of chairs, enormous wicker baskets, day beds, fake rocks and even prop urinals.

Prices start at $2 and range into hundreds. Customers may only purchase up to 15 costumes and 5 props each.

There’ll also be an entirely new set of stock for the second part of the sale, on 27 and 28 November, so nobody will miss out!
