La Boutique Fantasque

Sharing some album covers (and a costume) with today's music.

First, the music. La Boutique Fantasque is a ballet about a magic toy shop that comes to life at night. The music is by Ottorino Respighi and is based on piano works by Gioachino Rossini, which is why the music is listed under "Rossini-Respighi."

And now the album covers:

This costume for the ballet is by Leon Bakst, who I will have to feature someday on Art Thursday because he is fabulous!
