This week, we excitedly unpacked our costumes for Madama Butterfly which arrived all the way from Houston after 3 weeks in transit. There are boxes upon boxes of neatly labelled items from kimonos to army uniforms, hats, flowers…and, as you can see, LOTS of sandals.
From here the items will be sorted, stored and measured in some 90 fittings over the next few months in which OperaQ’s Wardrobe Department will become its usual pre-production hive of activity.

Madama Butterfly is a co-production of Houston Grand Opera, Grand Théâtre de Genève and Lyric Opera of Chicago.
