Orfeo: male to female

Yesterday was the opening performance of Orfeo ed Euridice at The Canadian Opera and the show is stunning! ┬áRobert Carsen has Amore look like Orfeo in the first act and Euridice in the third act – here is the makeup and wig process that occurs during the 80 minute opera.

Anne Marie is about to turn me into a boy.

Beard and shading to accentuate my manly features.

The manly wig.

Wig off, hot rollers in to turn into a woman.

Rollers out, light makeup on. Ready to revive Euridice.
