Photos I took from the US Third National Tour (Music Box Company) display at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC. Just posting these together in case they hadn’t made the rounds yet. The incredible detail you see in these dresses is breathtaking up close. They make these pieces arguably the most beautiful and complicated dresses in the show.
And yes, if I could have one costume from the show, it would be THAT particular red rehearsal dress! It’s gorgeous and I love the bold red/black striping in the fabric. According to the placard in front, the skirt also sports over 700 yards of trim! I believe that particular one was Anne Runolfsson’s…for some reason that is stuck in my head. Not confirmed, but they look pretty darn close. BTW, Anne Runolfsson is awesome.
I’m in love with the pink one (Prima Donna costume?).
