On October 18, Australian soprano Jessica Pratt made her debut in one of G. Rossini’s most challenging soprano parts: the Babylonian queen Semiramide. The expected debut – in concert version – took place under the direction of Maestro Giuliano Carella at Opera de Marseille.
For this special occasion, Jessica chose a dress-change between the first and second part.
In the first part, the soprano wore a black velvet evening dress, straight line, with pleated on the neckline and on the waist. On the shoulders an aquamarine silk chiffon stole.
The second evening dress is composed of two pieces: a black petticoat and a short, triangular lace cape with application of sequins and beads ton sur ton.
A classic and tasteful charm!
