In the Press

By Stepan Atamian | “I didn’t know what my costume was supposed to be like until the production was announced. When I saw the sketches, I just thought they were wacko.”

“Wacko” might be the only way to describe the costume Italian bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni had to wear for the Metropolitan Opera’s “The Enchanted Island.” Donning long black braids, white and yellow face paint, and particularly hairy feet, Mr. Pisaroni was virtually unrecognizable as the monster Caliban, particularly for audiences who saw him in the fall as Leporello. Although Mr. Pisaroni is a tall well-dressed man in real life, his Caliban was a deformed creation only Frankenstein could be proud of.

After a long rehearsal for a recital next month, Mr. Pisaroni looked wiped out as he sat in the Met Opera cafeteria. When speaking about his costume, however, Mr. Pisaroni lit up.
