Design for Nikolai Bykov’s costume, Princess Brambilla

From The Director's Prism: E. T. A. Hoffmann and the Russian Theatrical Avant-Garde by Dassia N. Posner

  • Design that suggests the costume for one of Nikolai Bykov’s characters in Princess Brambilla rather than exhaustively depicting it. The costume contains splashes of red, white, yellow ochre, and black with green gloves, a feathered hat, and a hint of a mask. Bykov played an artist, a carnival mask, and Capitano (in the main pantomime) in the production.
