Riccardo Tisci for Opéra National de Paris

Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci goes straight from designing tour costumes for Rihanna to creating opera costumes from ballet.

Tisci has been working directly with the atelier of the Palais Garnier at the Opéra National de Paris to create beautifully intricate haute couture costumes for Boléro de Ravel.

Not only is Mr Tisci involved with the production but his muse Marina Abramovic has overseen the set design whilst the stage photography is shot by none other than Inez & Vinoodh!

It is one of the dreams of a designer to design costumes for a ballet. I have had offers in the past from many other big theaters/operas. But I never felt ready. When this one came along, I felt it was the moment to say yes for many reasons.

First, being Italian, I am very proud to have been asked to create costumes by Brigitte Lefèvre, director of danse at Paris’ national Opera which is the biggest opera theater in the world and it is such an iconic institution in France. Second, because it is the Bolero. The project is amazing because it is made by a group of unique people with great talent, from the set design by Marina Abramovic to choreography by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Damien Jalet.

Bolero is all about intensity! The music has such an intense feeling. I wanted the dancers to feel naked somehow. The costumes express two sides of me: darkness and romanticism. The dancers wear nude catsuits in illusion tulle embroidered with white lace forming a skeleton. They shed several layers as they dance just like the life cycle of animals or flowers losing their petals. They become these moving skeletons, strong and fragile at the same time.” – Riccardo Tisci

Boléro at the Opéra National de Paris is on now until 3rd June 2013.
