Shakespeare to Sondheim: Designs from the Tobin Collection

September 7, 2011| December 18, 2011


Greek gods and heroines, remorseless Elizabethan villains, Romantic ballets with tragic lovers, and Broadway’s most sophisticated musicals engage visitors in this fall’s exhibition from the McNay’s theatre arts collection. Rich in scene designs, Shakespeare to Sondheim includes maquettes from Hector Berlioz’s opera Les Troyens and William Shakespeare’s Richard III. Center stage are costume designs including Ivan Bilibin’s exquisite watercolor of Odette in Swan Lake and Ann Hould-Ward’s drawings for Sondheim’s Sunday in the Park with George.
