Working with the wonderful director Ned Canty, I combined silhouettes from the late 18th century (when the opera was written) with the 19th century and modern couture to create a new look for the world of Don Giovanni. Our resources were limited, so I made a virtue of bold color and iridescent fabrics that looked beautiful untrimmed. I was lucky enough to have the amazing draper Marianne Krostyne to custom-make most of the show, which completed my invented world.
