Queen Skyhook

Item# 10062429


Queen Skyhook

Suspended in mid-air on an arch, this fanciful skyhook or “balance toy” is handcrafted in the image of a regal queen, sporting an Elizabethan ruffled collar, royal scepter and crown.

Each one-of-a-kind piece is fashioned from recycled metal, hand-painted and finished with a distressed antique patina.

Unique and collectible, the Queen Skyhook is reflective of the Met’s productions of Donizetti’s three Tudor queen operas.

  • Measures approximately 23.50" H
  • Complete with desktop stand
     

Anna Bolena premiered at Milan’s Teatro Carcano in 1830, and was Donizetti’s first great international success. David McVicar, who created the Met’s new production of Anna Bolena, says of the work: “Donizetti takes the bel canto form and explores every possible dramatic opportunity within it. The lynchpin of the story is Anna Bolena’s inability to provide Henry VIII with the male heir that he craves. And, of course, to be a wife of Henry VII is to risk as much as you gain.”
