Our Costume Shop is Awesome




When the rented Act 2 dress for soprano Michelle Capalbo, who stars as Tosca in VO’s upcoming production (sharing the role with soprano Tamara Mancini) , proved to be inadequate, Parvin Mirhady, VO’s Head of Costumes and Costume Consultant, sprang into action. She created a design that fit the scheme of the production, and after drawing a pattern, she cut some gorgeous cloth that she had purchased earlier this year in Iran. She then handed the pieces to sewer Xiao Ping Liu, and presto! Within 24 hours a gown is emerging. Ms. Capalbo is evidently thrilled with the result. She told Parvin that wearing it, she will sing better!
