Coming Up: Joyce DiDonato & Christian LaCroix.

Photographs by Cory Weaver, 2012. Designs by Christian LaCroix for the San Francisco Opera, 2012. Featuring Joyce DiDonato.

Coming this Sunday I have the honor and the pleasure of photographing the one and only Joyce DiDonato and world-renowned fashion designer, Christian LaCroix in The San Francisco Opera’s new production of Bellini’s  I Capuleti e i Montecchi (The Capulets and Montagues). Above you’ll see some production shots, taken by Cory Weaver, last week. Check out the Michael Jackson glittery glove Joyce is sporting!

On the bottom left you’ll see Ms. DiDonato as Romeo surrounded by female choristers in costumes that were originally from The Munich Opera. LaCroix then reassembled the older, archival costumes,  and brilliantly spliced them together to create a delightfully mismatched kaleidoscope of colors, textures, and periods. I cannot wait to see these beauties up close as I take the costume archival photos. It certainly will be a memorable and stylish weekend!

If you get a chance, grab a ticket to see the show, you won’t regret it! Bonne chance mes amis!

  1. Love it! LaCroix and Ms. Didonato as Romeo adds a fresh twist that will introduce yet another generation to Shakespeare. The hair is fabulous too!
