Costume design: François-Noël Cherpin

“Together with François-Noël Cherpin’s luminous costumes… they put the imperial into this Ballet Imperial.”

“The beautiful costumes, especially designed for this production by François-Noël Cherpin, finish the ballet off completely.”

“New to Dutch National Ballet’s repertoire, the costumes are once again designed by Cherpin. Inspired by the last Grand Ball of the Romanovs, his tutus, in gentle hues of blue, pink, ivory and gold, shimmer rather than sparkle.”
