Our pièce de résistance. The jewel in our crown. Our costumiers at Thespis Studios adore this collection of costumes. Lavishly detailed, opulent to the hilt, this is everything we wanted it to be when we set out to create this thundering spectacle.
The Phantom of the Opera is our flagship production, and our largest show to date, with the full set consisting of a whopping 190 costumes.
We are talking: Ballet dresses designed professionally in keeping with the period.
No expenses spared in honouring the journey of arguably the world’s most loved Chorus girl: Christine Daaé. From her humble beginnings within the ballet corps; darning her ruby, emerald, and gold coloured ballet dress as a slave girl, to her outfits worn after her meteoric success, marked by her Victorian-style bustle dresses. And lastly, her majestic masquerade dress in all its delicate splendour, perfectly complimenting Raoul's formal attire, and in fact the whole masquerade number.
Handmade Venetian masks, sourced and created in Venice by one of more ‘secretive’ partners. They prefer to remain anonymous as I’m sure you can appreciate.
A remote controlled Music box complete with a Cymbal smashing monkey. Also a number of other brilliant items to elevate your prologue.
Period hand mirrors and brushes for your dear Christine. Fans for fops. Boxes for fops. Flips for flops…….. just checking you’re still with us. Good! You haven’t fainted yet….
Appropriate footwear, accessories, costume jewellery, props, HATS, CANES, GLOVES! Including entirely metal Roman armour for the Hannibal scenes.
A Hannibal poster! (p.s. We will soon have an original oil-painted poster designed for Thespis to include in this package)
THREE flintlock Pistols. TWO boars on a platter, MANY Roman spears, and a Severed head… in a pear tree…… Still with us?
Now as you can surely appreciate, due to the sheer size of this particular production, we require at least 4 weeks notice, no less. Ideally we require at least 2 months prior to your show going up. That way you have more chance of guaranteeing our costumes being available.
Clients are more than welcome to visit our premises and inspect our costume set, simply call us to arrange such an appointment. we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
Our adult Phantom costume set has graced theatres all over Europe, including Iceland’s Harpa Theatre, Malta, Ireland, Guernsey, the latter had to be approved by The Lord Lloyd- Webber himself, and… well, frankly, I should stop now, my wrist is being slapped.
Our point being: this is an internationally used costume set, sought by theatre groups all over Europe. We’re certain this will create some of the best memories not just for your audience, but for your cast of beautiful thespians too. The love and effort gone into putting this show together is nothing short of a maniacal obsession. It could indicate a deep underlying condition but we will overlook that. For now.
Thespis was the first costumiers to supply costumes for ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ to Ireland for the wonderful Tipperary Musical Society who absolutely smashed it out the park.
And we’ll be returning to Ireland very soon, this time to Wexford, with the Wexford Light Operatic Society’s production of ‘Hunchback’ in just a few short months.
And perhaps most excitingly, Thespis is honoured to be supplying the first ‘Phantom of the Opera’ to go out on an adult amateur licence to Ireland! they’ll be setting off very soon to join the Carrick-on-Suir Musical Society for their stellar production in just a few weeks time!
From all of us at Thespis: “break a leg!” - and we cannot wait to hear all about it!

Directors Note: We do not supply any wigs or the ballet shoes for the ballet corps.
