I’m grateful for gorgeous costumes – which are dependent on brilliant designers who want to show the performers off to their very best, talented drapers and stitchers who bring his/her creation to life, and the fitters who are able to make a costume designed for someone else fit the new singer’s body. In this case, the designer was Michael Stennett, designing for the original Rosina, Frederica von Stade, following the theme of the production: paintings by Magritte, hence the blue material with clouds!
