Revisiting the "Opera Stock" concept we started two years earlier with Cosi fan TutteCaptain Lovelock utilized the same base pieces, with color accents this time taking inspiration from period garments such as the pet en l'air, justacorp, and polonaise,

giving form, volume and movement to the comic characters.  

While the previous two operas worked under a stock based on 18th century forms, The Music Shop required creating the beginning of an 19th century stock.  Set in Russia, the hallucination scene allowed for comic takes on traditional shapes.
