at the Novaya Opera House in Moscow 2008.  Costume and set design by Anne Tilby.  Directed by Elijah Moshinsky.  

Brief: an uplifting and joyous. Elijah used early Buster Keaton silent movies for mood, genre and period reference.

Inspired by Harold Lloyd's and Buster Keaton's silent movies, makeup was pancake white,   set pieces revolved with many doors for comedy entrance /exits, painted and printed cloths, palettes and design used  Sonia Delauney and the Futurist painters.

The Novaya Opera House is a beautifully restored 1900s building with bevelled glass windows, in the park.
