And then a rush of cold air…
An exceptionally handsome man walked in with a confident yet courteous air.
This was Hélène’s brother Anatole Kuragin
I wanted to make another costume photoset, and decided to do Anatole’s since he has only two, and then I remembered that his costumes have changed colour over time, both ultimately making him more ambiguous through costume design, with the black jacket becoming white and his abduction coat going from a coat that is far rougher than future ones at Ars Nova, to red and eventually being made in green for Broadway.
But going through the show like I did with the Helene post, Anatole is in the vest through the Prologue, wears the jacket in the opera, back to the vest for The Duel, jacket in The Ball, vest and coat in Balaga and The Abduction, and jacket jacket again during The Great Comet of 1812 and the curtain call.
And bonus because despite so few costumes I still ran out of space because of photos showing detail:
