A report from the costume workshops for La Sylphide —
Scottish cottage to the ghostly lights of a magical forest, the elements making
up La Sylphide revolve around an imaginary theatrical world that offers
an illusion of immateriality. Michel Fresnay's costumes evoke the same
aesthetic, with farandoles in Scottish kilts and seraphic tulle dresses that
leave the impression of an enchanted dream. Photographer Natalia Voronova slips
into the costume workshops at Garnier where magic happens.
