Seattle Opera Costumes Up Close
Seattle Opera’s 50th Anniversary Season heats up this January with Verdi’s thrilling Rigoletto. We have recently posted a new behind-the-scenes videogiving you a preview of the distinctive costumes designed by Marie Anne Chiment for this Seattle Opera production. Video includes two familiar musical selections and several of Chiment’s illustrations, rendered in an evocative 1930′s style.
In Verdi’s hugely popular thriller, a callous court jester tries to protect his daughter from a womanizing Duke and finds himself caught in a web of corruption, lechery, and revenge. The action-packed plot, memorable characters, and parade of hit tunes put Rigoletto high on the list of “top 10″ operas.
There are only seven performances of this riveting, must-see classic - get your tickets today!
