Spoleto season. The show is a celebration of 12 of the greatest female entertainers of our time, ranging from Judy Garland and Barbara Streisand to Madonna and Mariah Carey. Spanning the decades from the smoky jazz clubs of the roaring 20’s to the blinding stadium lights of contemporary pop music, Decadent Divas features multi-media visuals by Sun Head Projects and couture costume design by Charleston’s premier couture designer Mary Porter. Presented by Piccolo Spoleto Festival.
Combining famous tunes, couture costumes, and beautiful ballerinas, Charleston Ballet Theater will perform their fall show, Decadent Divas, as part of Piccolo Spoleto. The show combines diva-sung music, video footage of the chosen ladies, specially designed costumes by Charleston's own Mary Porter, and dancing, of course.
