Every costume sketch tells a story of how the character in an opera is born. And the costume has to externalise their identity: the essence of the soul. It isn’t just the initial process of build, each drawing finds within itself the resolution as "pure expression"; it can be considered an "objet d'art". The creative act has yet to encounter the problems associated with the physical build and the performance of a costume. In the expression lives the impression, the suggestion of all that has yet to "become" resonates. Directing, set design, costumes, everything moves in the same direction, in perfect harmony. In the search for a fresh angle and in the network of ideas, narration undergoes a process of deconstruction and reconstruction. Each time, the inspiration that drives takes a different, unpredictable turn. (Angela Buscemi)
