il Teatro alla Moda at the Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts Sets Expectations for Things to Come

I recently spent a wonderful morning with my former client and friend Lou Moore of the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. We enjoyed catching up over breakfast at the Montage with a view of the garden, chatting about the premiere offering of what will be known as the Beverly Hills Cultural Center. Lou has worked tirelessly to see that the vision is realized of having a world class performing arts center in Beverly Hills, and the Zoltan Pali revitalization of the historic Post Office in tandem with the new facility will open its doors in 2013.

Moore says that she always had it in mind that patrons of a performing arts complex in a fashion oriented city like Beverly Hills would love a “Theatre in Fashion” theme. While vacationing in Brescia, Italy in the spring, her dream materialized when she saw an exhibit of Italian couture designers’ theatrical costumes. Relationships were made, and it was agreed that the perfect sister city for il Teatro alla Moda to debut in the United States would be Beverly Hills.

Lou gave me a private tour of the installation, which will certainly set the bar of excellence until the new Italian Renaissance revival facility opens in 2013. Held over until December 18th, the exhibition is the first to explore Italy’s famous haute couture designers and their impact on the stages of opera, dance and theatre. Over 80 costumes, sketches and drawings from Giorgio Armani, Roberto Capucci, Enrico Coveri, Fendi, Alberta Ferretti, Romeo Gigli, Antonio Marras, Missoni, Emanuel Ungaro, Valentino and Gianni Versace are all there to behold in all their amazing detail and finery. One can recognize the designer’s signature styles immediately, and relish in the indulgence that a costume allows.

The exhibit is diplayed at 253 North Beverly Drive on the ground floor of the new MGM Place, which has been converted into a temporary gallery. After seeing the costumes, you will certainly want a copy of the exquisite hard bound collection of new photos that the folks at the Annenberg have published – I think it will be on the most wanted Christmas/Hanukah gift list for all lovers of Teatro or Moda and is only available at the exhibit!
