In this document is a description of the process of conceiving and implementing the costume designs for Maryland Opera Studio’s production of The Cunning Little Vixen. Our production was set in a fictional dystopian world where the lines between human nature and animal instincts are blurred. Included in this process are the original concept designs and the development of those designs in conjunction with the director's vision, as well as process images including research, fitting photos and final production photos. The Cunning Little Vixen is a Czech Opera composed by Leoš Janáček. It was originally planned to be produced at the University of Maryland, College Park’s Maryland Opera Studio, April 3rd - 12th, 2020 under the direction of Professor Amanda Consol, Scenic Design by Grace Guarniere, Lighting Design by Lauren Gallup, and Costume Design by Austin Blake Conlee. Performances were cancelled due to the COVID19 pandemic.
