The Barber of Seville

Rossini Costume and Set Design, Novaya Opera Moscow.

 Costume and set design by Anne Tilby.  Directed by Elijah Moshinsky 

The Brief: uplifting and joyous!

Inspired by Harold Lloyd's and Buster Keaton's silent movies, makeup was pancake white,  set pieces revolved with many doors for comedy entrance /exits, painted and printed cloths, palettes and design used Sonia Delauney and other Futurist painters.

The Novaya Opera House is a beautifully restored 1900s building, with beveled glass windows, in a park. Opera is more accessible, affordable and popular than in the UK.
