Creating the Arcadia backdrop

Making any part of the set for a ballet is a carefully thought out craft - every detail designed, tested, mocked up before being created - it can take weeks to bring something from the paper to life. In celebration of its London premiere next week, we've put together a look at some of the incredible artistry that went into creating the hand painted and carefully designed backdrop for #BRBArcadia.

Enjoy a behind the scenes time lapse that shows in a mere 2 minutes multiple hours of the 7 days of work that went into this by designer Atena Ameri and artist Jon Goodwin, as well as some pictures from behind the scenes of the design process and finished product.
