Opera Spanga

Costume design 2019



In the summer of 2019, Opera Spanga brings the two short operas Pagliacci and Il Tabarro to the Friesian village of Spanga. These masterpieces were composed round the turn of the 19th century, and deals with a theme that leaves no soul untouched: female infidelity. The women are driven to adultery not by their wild libidos, but by an irrepresible desire to redefine themselves. In both operas the couples are inextricably linked both emotionally and financially. They work and travel together, and their past and present are intertwined.
