The fonds provides information on Ana Cappelluto’s project with the CNC on Quebec theatre costume designers, mainly between 1997 and 2000.
The fonds mainly consists of a web site entitled “Archive de costume de Montréal / Montréal Costumes Archive”. There are also a few administrative records and some reference materials on the history of costumes.

Cappelluto, Ana

Montreal Costumes Archive

(Recommended browsers for the website: Chrome or Firefox)

The website describes 288 costumes from the CNC collection, created between 1956 and 1996 by designers that dominated the Quebec theatre landscape. The costumes were made for productions in various theatres in Montreal.

The 288 costumes are organized into 17 historical periods. For each costume there is a detailed description – in French and English - of the work with one to four photos, for a total of 1233 photos. When available other pieces of information are mentioned, such as the costume designer (and artisans and fabricators), the play, theatre, actor, role, and date. Most of the costumes on the website were designed by François Barbeau, but there are also works by the following designers: Maryse Bienvenu, Véronique Borboën, Jean-Yves Cadieux, Meredith Caron, Hortense Guillemard, Louise Jobin, François Laplante, Liliane Laîné, and Mark Negin.
