DONNAS IN "DON JUAN"








Many different Don Juan Triumphant female costumes are gathered here, as there are many ladies in the mock opera, but I have only this one design. Mhere seem to be three or four designs for the ladies, with different details, but there are still some common features: semi-long skirts made of several flounced layers, often black or gold lace on top of a coloured fabric, as well as corseted bodices with rich trimming. Some of these have a corset worn over a blouse, others have a corset worn under a bolero jacket with flounced sleeves. This is also reminiscent of the costumes worn by Carlotta and Christine.

All of the actresses wears wigs. All have black, sleek hair; some with a knot in the back and a rose in the hair, others with large loops and braids on the crown of the head.
