Assignment: Scenery / Costumes [?]

Company [?]
Theatre [?], Location [?]

Designs commissioned by [?], choreography

Since Barry Kay did not start working outside of Australia until 1956, his designs for The Rake's Progress presumably concern an Australian, maybe a Melbourne, production. Apart from the designs bearing his signature and the year date, they contain no references as to the venue, location, precise performance date and whether they were intended for the ballet or the opera, both of the same title.
