Design Statement:

Though currently a part of the Bolshoi Ballet Company's reperatore, La Fille du Pharaon (composed by Cesare Pugni in 1862) is somewhat of a lesser-known ballet. This design was inspired through the textures and weight of Ancient Egypt, as well as incorporating vivid and etherial colors of fantasy locations. I chose to do a complete set of stage renderings in watercolor, guache, and sepia ink, as I felt they perfectly captured the dream journey of this story.
