The local bespoke glass-makers “Glass By Design” based in Station Approach have received a visit from world famous opera star – and Penarth resident – Rebecca Evans.

The glass shop has installed a special window display in support the opening in Cardiff of the  Welsh National Opera’s  production of Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss  – with elements which should strike a chord with those who know the opera.

A table in the form of a stopped clock is part of the eyecatching “Der Rosenkavalier” window display at Glass by Design at Station Approach, Penarth

The production opens tomorrow  Sunday June 4th with Rebecca Evans playing  the lead role of the Marschallin –  the conflicted heroine who “has to accept the passing of time & give up her young lover, Octavian”. A symbolic stopped-clock is part of the window display which also features timepieces with faces made of Welsh slate by Aled Jenkins .

The presentation of a ceremonial silver rose  is key to the whole plot of the opera. Cutlery artist Alexana Blott has created a large “tablespoon rose”  for the window display and a special silver rose was presented to Rebecca Evans as a “thank you” gift from Glass by Design.
