SMU Opera Behind the Scenes: A New Way of Rendering Costume Designs

When creating costume designs for the upcoming opera comedy “The Elixir of Love,” designer Mari Taylor (M.F.A. Stage Design ’17) drew her designs on actual images of each actor instead of using traditional sketches.

Costume shop staff Genie Stallings, Cayla Tally and Allie Elsey say the hybrid renderings help them capture the physicality of each actor as they cut and sew the costumes. “The Elixir of Love” will be presented by SMU Meadows Opera Theatre Feb. 9-12, 2017 in the Bob Hope Theatre.
