Sarah Brightman in West End (left) and Broadway (right).
I have a feeling I’ve made this photoset before. Ah well. As usual I have few or no good photos of the three Il Muto costumes, so I only included the Serafimo one.
About the Broadway Aminta one. I almost suspect the costume is unfinished. It got a lot more decorations on the stomacher later on, and the sleeves also got an additional layer. Maybe this is from rehearsals? Either how, I DO prefer the West End dress for its more textured look and historical flair.
“Widely acknowledged as one of the most talented photographers of the nineteenth century, Charles Marville (French, 1813–1879) was commissioned by the city of Paris to document both the picturesque, medieval streets of old Paris and the broad boulevards and grand public structures that Baron Georges-Eugène Haussmann built in their place for Emperor Napoleon III.”
