Among the pieces available for visitors to see is scenery from the spring operas, “Idomeneo” and “La Bohème,” both of which closed just last weekend, in the center’s scene shop, and sketches of the costumes used in other Clarice Smith Center productions.

“You can touch and feel them and have the opportunity to play with objects that are larger than life,” [production manager Ryan] Knapp said.
