I’m so excited to come back to Tbilisi with Tosca, it’s really a dream for me. I must say that I feel like home when I’m in Georgia, an it’s always amazing the enthusiasm and the high level of all artist that are working in this beautiful theatre. Tosca is an opera very important for me, because it’s the first one that I had in video and the vocal score, an I was immediately in love with it. Watching an rewatching the opera millions of times. I choose an a very accurate historical stile with period patterns, trying to recreated the essence of the beginning of the XIX. Hand made embroideries, accessories and jewelry are the final piece of this puzzle that I dream for so many years.
