Brooklyn Ballet has collaborated with Patricia Forelle since she designed costumes for Mystery Sonatas in 2005. (You can read more about our work with Patricia here.)

Her breathtaking Baroque costumes (see above) for La Folia earned her a 2011 Bessie Award nomination for design, and we simply can't wait to see our dancers in costume for this year's Forest Fairies and Peasant Revolt.
A presentation of Michel Fokine's Les Sylphides alongside Isadora Duncan's Chopin Dances, Forest Fairies requires a few drastically different ideas in terms of costume design. So far, we're smitten with Patricia's watercolors of dress for the sylphs and Isadora figure. Can't wait to see the dancers move in these beautiful designs!
