Lc Graciella's Dress
The house lights dim, slowly.
She comes though the doors, down the center aisle, slowly.
Whispers erupt, like a wave across the silence. Almost loud. This opera house was considered to be acoustically one of the five best in the world.
The grand central chandelier, with 700 clear lights, perfectly illuminates the slight sheen of her dress, the wave of her hair, the softness of her smile.
I removed my program from the red velvet seat.
It was time.
Graciella has arrived.
Aida can begin.
Graciella’s Teatro Colón Dress (No. 3587). Recreated in a satin charmeuse bias cut woven skirt with attached viscose jersey knit top. Dramatic crossover V- shaped bodice front and back. Elbow length sleeves. Rolled hem adds finishing touch.
Comes with its own acoustics.
