Bristol Opera School1While Barry Kay's set and costume designs for Engaged! bear no references to performing venues, the costume drawings are, however, inscribed with the names of the singers, corresponding with the cast of the Windsor presentation. But there is no indication as to whether the designs applied to the Bristol staging as well.
Intended for the Victoria State Opera Company2For reason unbeknown to the Barry Kay Archive, the Victoria State Opera Company decided to abandon the production of Peter Grimes later in 1984 or in early 1985, thus terminating Barry Kay's design work midstream. By that time he had designed the preparatory so-called white model, or working model of miniature scale, and completed the final model at a scale of 1:25. The termination however put an end to designing the costumes. – See Biography for further information.
Set Design: Barry Kay2In 1953, when Barry Kay was still studying at the Académie Julian in Paris but settled in Melbourne again later that year, he created four sets designs for The Rake's Progress – one for each of the three acts, and an act drop. Although the drawings are titled, dated and signed, they contain no performance data. It is therefore possible that they represent a study project or perhaps an exam work.
