Inside the WNO Costume Studio: Madame Butterfly

The experience of designing in the opera really added an amazing
design point of view in my visual art. Opera is definitely everything:
sound, lights, space, just the whole natural world on the stage.
—Jun Kaneko (The Washington Post)

With opening night just weeks away, the WNO’s costume team is diligently working to build Jun Kaneko’s stunning costumes for Madame Butterfly. Step inside the WNO Costume Studio for a special glimpse into the process and see these designs come to life May 6–21 in the Kennedy Center Opera House.
