Anna Kerenina - Korean National Ballet
The first impression after watching this ballet version of ‘Anna Karenina,’ in one word, was ‘beautiful.’ The costumes, designed by London-based set and costume designer Emma Ryott, were breath-taking. The weight of the masterpiece was felt through the costumes, as if they brought the atmosphere of the period alive.

Marco Polo – Guangzhou, China
Emma Ryott’s costumes wove Venetia, Chinese and Mongolian attire into a harmonious tapestry, even giving dancers from the Guangdong Song and Dance Ensamble ‘water sleeves’ (a staple of Chinese opera) for the Choreographer Michael Barry to employ with modernist flourish.
