From the Imperial Theater: Chinese Opera Costumes of the 18th and 19th Centuries

Paid Entry ($25.00)
The Met Fifth Avenue, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, 10028
"Drawn entirely from The Met collection, this exhibition examines these luxury textiles from artistic and technical points of view. It is organized in two rotations. The first focuses on costumes used in dramas based on historical events; and the second will feature costumes from plays derived from legends and myths. The presentation showcases eight robes, each of which was created for a specific role—court lady, official, general, monk, nun, and immortal. A set of album leaves faithfully depicting theatrical characters wearing such robes is also displayed."
