    Default Opera pictures

    I often enjoy seeing old set designs of operas or photos of past productions. I saw this article and felt inspired to start a thread on the subject: https://www.roh.org.uk/news/the-most...pired-by-opera

    Post opera-related pictures. Maybe antique prints, paintings, photos, set designs, costume designs, etc. I think this could be fun!

    Nilsson in Elektra. I find this one funny for some reason:

    Not so old, but I always loved this promotional photo for the Met Ballo. Don Gustavo with his loyal consigliere.

    The Met Opera Shop has several posters including the one you just mentioned as well as the one I want:

    I think they can print posters at the print shop at college. Perhaps I should take advantage of it!

    O my word! We were thinking the same thing again!
    I started typing before I saw your post.

    Yes, it is a picture worth a thousand words for sure!

    /\ I wonder if whoever designed that was aware that he/she was creating a work of art in just the sketch itself. Or maybe that was the intention.

    Speaking of costumes, apparently one of Nilsson's Turandot dresses is on display somewhere:

    This production I find looked particularly beautiful. \/ Excellent color coordination!
