New Online Learning Classes

This past May, Seattle Opera offered our first ever stage makeup class, and now we are happy to offer an online version of the class, an introductory course perfect for anyone wanting to learn a new hobby or anyone working in theater anywhere.

Seattle Opera Hair and Makeup Manager Liesl Gatcheco-Munemitsu leads the lesson along with Prinical Hair and Makeup Artist Tricia Partida. Our model is straight from our own women's chorus, Lucy Weber. Here, our artists show how to achieve a French Revolution look.

Part 1 covers foundation, contour, and highlighting.

Part 2 covers eyes, cheeks, and lips, plus the final transformation with wig and costume.

We would love your feedback as we consider whether to create more videos like this in the future. For example: Did you find these videos valuable? Did they make you want to learn more? How likely are you to use these skills? Please leave a comment and let us know your thoughts! Thanks, and enjoy!
