Maliene, Opera Dell Arte 2019
Costume Mood Boards and Illustrations for the new Opera Maliene, based on the fairytale The Princess Maliene. This opera was being developed and written as I started working with the director, so my work was really helpful to start visualizing characters and helping inform the world creating process. The world was very dark, tragic and yet childlike, so I used that for my illustrations, to help get performers into the world.
Costume Illustrations for Callisto, A Opera based off the Greek Myth of the same name which we decided to modernize and make accessible to a younger audience.
The director was looking for fun, quirky characters that would resonate with the modern world and draw in a less tradtition opera audience. I was brought a month before rehearsals to make mood boards and develop characters with her from the 1 dimensional libretto and really bring them to life before singers were involved. As singers came rehearsals and fittings characters evolved, but my groundwork with the director was like the first layer of paint in this process!
