The orchestra included many musicians who earlier participated in our performance of Jake Heggie`s Dead Man Walking.

The costumes were designed by London-based Olivia Spiteri (Spain), who graduated from Istituto Europeo di Design, Milan.
Fabrics on the stage and Madame Flora`s costume were kindly donated by Yaezawa, an emerging Japanaese brand bringing the art of Yuuzen Dyeing technique to contemporary Japanese designs on silk. There was an exhibition of Yaezawa`s works at the Mori Art Museun in Roppongi Hills. Read more about Yaezawa`s work-
