enchanted island

Here’s a stealth shot taken (@ curtain call) of the opera, “The Enchanted Island”, performed at the Metropolitan Opera House [Lincoln Center]. I went on Saturday and it was fantastical! Notice the suspended mermaids!!  The opera took you from land as well as down to Neptune’s kingdom under the sea.

A Baroque Opera in English that combines “The Tempest” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” together with music by classical composers like Vivaldi and Handel.  Set design by Julian Crouch combines both built set and projections beautifully.  The costumes were created with wonderful textures and colors.  I really loved it.

Here are some images of the costumes and a few set design drawings found at the NYtimes site:
