MEG AS GYPSY GIRL




Meg Giry's Don Juan Triumphant costume is referred to as "Gypsy Girl". Meg only appears briefly on stage, receiving a purse of money from Don Juan and then dancing off stage. She wears a corseted bodice with a peplum, and with mock lacing in front. The front panel usually has a contrasting colour, and a mock chemise underneath. The bodices are usually brownish or golden, sometimes with a hint of pale lavender. The skirt is mustard or rust coloured, with various red/blue ribbons in a Harlequin square pattern, and with red or bronze or yellow tabs. On the head she wears a headscarf or small cap with coin decorations, and on the feet red ballet shoes. Various jewellery is worn - necklaces, large earrings, wristbands etc. Many stage costumes shows her covered with coins, which gives a nice sound when dancing. The underskirts are made of netting or tulle; in the US they are multicoloured, while European underskirt are black.

The costume design for this particular costume has never been published. But if looking to historical Esmeralda and character costumes, an abundance of coins and tabs/aprons/shawls over the skirt is typical traits. Another typical trait is the tambourine.

Please note: in many countries "gypsy" is today considered a slur. The name of the costume is used here in accordance with what the designer called it, and what it's still referred to in most productions.
