The classic of the ballet classics, The Sleeping Beauty by Tchaikovsky, relives in a new choreography by Matteo Levaggi, resident choreographer at Teatro Massimo in Palermo for 2017. The Costume Design Master’s students of the Accademia signed the costumes. A unique project in Europe, which allowed the young neo costume designers to move from the education to the labour market.
The costume-making process, developed on a series of meetings between Matteo Levaggi, the Ballet director of Teatro Massimo, Marco Bellone, and the students, represented a very important sign of trust and cultural exchange between one of the major European lyrical institutions and the world of education. Analyzing the structure of the new choreography, the students defined the artistic direction for each costume.
