Set Workshops

Prop Store

Workshops, 1st, 3d and 4th floor

One large storeroom houses beds, chairs, fake pianos, and life-size fake animals. Two other smaller ones are filled with everyday objects: fans, fake flowers, fake cigarettes, fake candles, etc. Like Ali Baba’s cave, they are filled with unusual and sometimes bizarre objects. 

Most of the large parts of the sets are stored in containers at the Port of Antwerp. Some elements that are too fragile, however, such as the furniture and the fake animals, are kept at La Monnaie in conditions designed to ensure their preservation.
