Rodarte to design costumes for Los Angeles Philharmonic
After their wild success creating ensembles for Natalie Portman’s role in “Black Swan,” Rodarte sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy are again venturing into costume design. This time round, the project is to craft costumes for the Los Angeles Philarmonic’s performance of “Don Giovanni” in May, reported WWD.
Directed by Christopher Alden, the opera will feature a set by Frank Gehry, creator of the Walt Disney Concert Hall in central L.A, the location of the new production.
“Opera has always been a part of us; our grandmother was from Rome and studied it as a young girl,” the two sisters jointly released to WWD. “To be a part of the legacy of ‘Don Giovanni’ is an amazing opportunity. Working with Frank Gehry in the concert hall that he designed, alongside [conductor] Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, is a dream.”
