Museo dei Costumi Teatrali

Last week, the Retreat group visited the costume collection of the Filarmonica Opera here in Verona. This is the Museo dei Costumi Teatrali. Here you see the amazing building in which they are housed.

We were allowed to view the costumes, created for operas here in Verona, in the early 1900's. The workmanship and attention to detail was amazing.

Below you can see a few of the costumes.

Wow! And to think that those details really would not be seen by the audiences.
