Costume worn on stage and screen often has a very special character, perhaps because it is so carefully designed to be worn and worked in. Museums exhibiting dress worn in operas, ballet, circus and the theater have an opportunity to recreate how and where it was worn, adding an extra dimension to this unique type of working clothes. Here is a series of exhibition photos from the Centre National du Costume de Scène, at Moulins, France, where French theatre, opera, and ballet costumes are held.
