Follow-Up & Results of the E-Bay Opera Set & Costume Sale
As a follow up to our earlier blogpost about the Companions of Opera, Amsterdam's sale of 9 lots of sets and stage finery; none of the bids met the reserve. The Aida set pictured at top, was the top bid at $21,100.00 U.S. That said, we do know Companions CEO Peter Kroone would like to sell these sets and stage finery to a current opera company, or a start-up opera company and will consider offers. He can be reached via the website: http://www.operaforsale.com/ or e-mailed directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are truly serious about purchasing any, or all parts of the items he offered on E-Bay, I know he would love to hear from you.
