Greek National Opera, Herodion, Athens, Greece

Costume Construction



Norma returned to the Odeon of Herodes Atticus in a  Greek National Opera production, directed by Carlus Padrissa and the  La Fura dels Baus. The creative, restless Spanish group, always eager for experimentation,  presented their own take on Norma, the fruit of a collective effort, drawing inspiration from poetic melodies, including Bellini’s well-known “Casta diva” aria.

The ReCompulsive Behaviours Creative Studio (Myrto Sarma) was commissioned the construction of three whole-body corsets and a headpiece for the leading ladies' costumes. LED light strips were later applied to the corsets. The headpiece was created for the role of Norma.
