International costume designer Charles Caine will offer a “behind-the-scenes” look at the Met and relate his experiences with such artists as Maria Callas, Beverley Sills, Franco Zeffrelli, and Marc Chagall. The presentation features costumes and memorabilia of historic theatrical fashions, including those created for Leontyne Price, Richard Tucker, and Renata Scotto.
Caine started his career at the Metropolitan Opera, as resident costume designer for 16 seasons, and since then has designed for many other opera companies, including Canadian Opera, Montreal Opera, San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, Chicago Lyric, Washington Opera, Philadelphia, Dallas, Houston, and Miami. His designs have appeared in the acclaimed PBS-TV production of Luisa Miller starring Domingo, Milnes and Scotto.
