The Opera Fashion exhibition is on public view until the end of August in the arcade of a regional government building at 3/5 Bankowy Square in Warsaw.

Exhibits include photographs of performing artists from Warsaw's Wielki Theater/National Opera showing off costumes from operas such as Tchaikovsky's Queen of Spades and Eugene Onegin, Gounod's Faust, Verdi's Rigoletto, and Offenbach's Tales of Hoffmann. There are also photos of costumes from operettas like Lehár's The Merry Widow and ballets such as Sonnenfeld's Pan Twardowski.

These shots are complemented by photos of scenes from Kurpiński's opera Zabobon, czyli krakowiacy i górale (Superstition, or the Cracovians and the Highlanders) and scenes from a production of Iwona, księżniczka Burgunda (Yvonne, Princess of Burgundy), a play by Polish dramatist Witold Gombrowicz.

The photographs are a collaborative effort between photographer Paweł "Blitz" Rosłon and fashion stylist Joanna Medyńska.
