Sunday, my desk is in the Huntington Park in Pasadena California. The reason to be here is the opening of Figaro at the Walt Disney Hall in Los Angeles with costumes designed by Azzedine Alaïa – I admit a long way to travel for an opera, but I could not miss seeing the Alaïa designs for this new expression in his work. And they were clearly wonderful. Reds and Whites that worked with and played off of the sets of Jean Nouvel. A memorable evening and worth the journey.
