Soprano Lydia Teuscher is a vision, with angel’s wings specially created for her to wear in the Usher Hall this morning.
Lydia will be singing in Das Paradies und die Peri, the Opening Concert of Edinburgh International Festival 2011.
Her winged outfit is inspired by the plot of the Opening Concert which tells of the peri, a winged, fairy like creature descended from fallen angels who is regains paradise through the tear of a repentant sinner
Lydia’s wings have been created by Edinburgh artist Joanne Sykes. Their design was also inspired by the chrysanthemums on the front of the Edinburgh International Festival 2011 programme.
