“And my-Karenina uniform will be richer than Vronsky,” he joked at the fitting Katya Guseva, who plays the main role in the musical “Anna Karenina.” Rehearsal on the stage of the Metropolitan operetta Theatre in full swing. But the suits to the state of readiness is still far.

First, Karenina is sewed not one closet and three: in another part of the play Valeria Lanskaya Anna and Olga Belyaeva. Secondly, the clothes should be very durable. Because the performances are seven days a week, and four years of daily operation of the costume are equal to thirty in everyday life! Besides the dress according to the fashion of the XIX century sewing very difficult. First create a frame, then a corset that accentuates an hourglass figure.

Performers of the main roles in the musical “Anna Karenina”: Igor Balalaev (Karenin), Ekaterina Guseva (Russia), Daria Anarina (kitty), Sergey Li (Vronsky)

Then everything is covered with a cloth. But only one layer luxury kalininskoy skirts, for example, took ten meters of black velvet. “How beautiful!” — circled in front of the mirror Gusev. The costumers are happy, too. To queue velvet coat Anna with a collar of Fox. Fittings a lot of at each stage. Everything should be adjusted perfectly: on stage any noticeable defect!

Part of the outfits for the musical sew in St. Petersburg. So dress Karenina in a huge suitcases regularly “traveling” on fitting from Peter to Moscow and back. At the final stage, they are adorned with embroidery, crystals, beads. At the same time manually creating fan — made of guipure, with gold powder, sewn purses and shoes for every artist. All this grandeur must impress the audience very soon — the premiere of the musical scheduled for early October.
