In the accessories, costumes and make-up department, red reigns supreme, while the craftsmen are busy organizing everything.

They are in the final preparations, testing on the stage. Originality is not lacking in this department, as evidenced by several chandeliers assembled with bulbs that play the role of flames, to replace a campfire.

More than 160 costumes were created for this production. Couturiers and designers have encountered their share of challenges. Each acrobat and discipline requires a new template and appropriate fabric. In addition, we had to think about cleaning since the artists will wear their costume for a period of 20 performances.

Cirque du Soleil wouldn't be what it is without makeup. Acrobats and dancers are multidisciplinary as they have to learn to apply makeup. Tutorials help them in their creation. They are in their second training and everything is going wonderfully, makeup designer Audrey Toulouse confirmed to TVA Nouvelles.

A family history hides in the production. Colette LeMay, the 12-year-old daughter of director Lydia Bouchard, will be the lead singer, alternating with 13-year-old Anaïs Gonzales. They will take on the role of Phoenix every other night.

Red is absolutely everywhere: in costumes, accessories and makeup. It represents the love, life and passion of the divas, these Quebec singers, who will shine in this show of 20 songs. The first performance of a series of 20 will be presented on July 20.
