Chagall: Fantasies for The Stage

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


Aleko from 1942.

Two of my favourite costume from Aleko. These were made in Mexico City.

Pan from Daphnis and Chloe designed in 1948.
Costumes for The Magic Flute – designed in 1967.
