Follow the production of the costumes for THE STIGMATISED from the drawings on paper to the first fittings with commentary from designer, Falko Herold.
THE STIGMATISED offers particular challenges to the designer Falko Herold as it requires the evocation of worlds of beauty and ugliness. Working alongside director David Bösch, Herold chose masks for the chorus town people who are invited to Elysium Island of pleasure in the last act; a gathering which turns into, what he describes as a heathen orgy. Herold is constantly aware of his responsibility to serve the dramaturgy and the need to help the audience identify the key characters of the opera.
