Object history note

This groundplan by Alix Stone is part of an extensive collection of designs purchased by the Theatre Museum directly from the artist in 1994. The design was executed for a production of Richard Rodney Bennett's opera "The Mines of Sulpur", performed by Sadler's Wells Opera at Sadler's Wells, February 24th 1965. The libretto was written by Beverley Cross. The production was directed by Colin Graham, and the lighting was designed by Robert Bryan.

The production was revived by the Sadler's Wells Opera at the London Coliseum in September 1973, and by English National Opera North at the Leeds Grand Theatre in March 1980.
