Glamorous opening night of La Traviata in Rome

Hershey Pascual   |   25 - 05 - 2016

It was a majestic occasion, last night, at the premiere of La Traviata in Teatro dell’Opera in Rome. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, Creative Directors of the Maison Valentino created a dazzling 120 costumes for the chorus and the costume for Flora. We suspect the project must have taken a while to prepare! Whilst Mr Valentino Gravani made four breathtaking costumes for the main character Violetta.
