DENMARK ROYAL SCENERY
Denmark's Queen Margrethe gestures as she speaks during a press conference in Copenhagen, Friday, Nov. 17, 2006. Queen Margrethe is again designing costumes and scenery for the theater, this time for a ballet, but insists that she is not giving up her job as the monarch of Denmark. Planning and drawing the outfits and scenery for a ballet, based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale "The Tinder Box, " often keeps her burning the midnight oil, she told reporters Friday. The ballet will open July 14 at Copenhagen's Tivoli gardens' Chinese-inspired pantomime theater.
