When I was in LA last month I was able to go and see the wonderful exhibition Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage  at LACMA. The exhibition runs until January 7, 2018.

It is a wonderful opportunity to see the costume and set designs created by Marc Chagall. Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage showcases  41 costumes and nearly 100 designs from the ballets Aleko, Firebird and Daphnis and Chloe and the opera The Magic Flute.

I reviewed the exhibition for Pointe Magazine – you can see the piece here: Pointe Magazine
