The Royal Opera House (ROH) approaches Werner at the Barry Kay Archive, relaying that Kay, shortly before he died, and MacMillan had discussed and agreed to mount the one-act version of Anastasia for The Royal Ballet (RB) in May 1986. The ROH proposes to Werner to reconstruct the set model, scale 1:25, based on a white model, scale 1:50, kept at the Archive, and to supervise the making of the full-scale scenery. The existing costumes of the RB's three-act production are to be used.

In consequence, the ROH is seeking to acquire from Werner the usage license for Kay's scenery and costumes [6.2], together with the requests to realize the staging at Covent Garden.

Kenneth MacMillan's full-length Isadora, premièred at the Royal Opera House in 1981, was not well received and soon dropped from the repertoire. As Monica Mason, the then current artistic director of The Royal Ballet, felt that the ballet deserved another chance, Deborah MacMillan, the choreographer's widow, devised a shortened version in a plain stage setting. Subsequently, the sets designed by Barry Kay were abandoned with only a selection of his costumes and properties presented in this new production. – In his review in the Financial Times, Gerald Dowler comments: "A black box serves as set with a minimum of props but many of Barry Kay's original costumes are stunningly recreated." >> back to text

Between 1946 and 1955, Zika Ascher, Britain's preeminent maker of innovative textiles based on contemporary art, commissioned fifty-one leading French and English artists, among them Barry Kay, to design scarves for the limited editions of the "Artists' Squares" project. The book states that Barry Kay's scarf design dates from 1947. As he was attending Wesley College, a Melbourne high school, from 1942 to 1948, the Archive believes that Kay created his scarf while studying at the Académie Julian in Paris between 1951 and 1953. >> back to text
