BACKSTAGE PASS: Giselle Costume Fittings

Take a look at the sumptuous Giselle costumes we’re borrowing from the Teatro del Maggio Musical Fiorentino in Florence, Italy (the same company who loaned us that gorgeous set you saw in last week’s blog post)!  We can’t wait for you to see these fabulous costumes in motion!
