The flamboyance of the late American pianist and vocalist Liberace will again be revisited through an upcoming exhibition highlighting the musician’s extravagant stage costumes and personal wardrobe pieces.
 
Dubbed as ‘Too Much of A Good Thing is Wonderful: Liberace and The Art of Costume’,  the pop-up exhibit is slated to take place at the luxury Las Vegas-based resort casino and hotel The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas from November 25, 2013 through January 2, 2014.
 
Jointly organized by the Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts as well as the hotel officials, the to-be-featured exhibits will include the iconic silver sequin lined gabardine and white fox cape, sported by the performer during his Christmas appearances in the city in 1985. Designed by the Greek-born master furrier Anna Nateece, the cape is adorned with a multi-limbed tree appliqué.
 
Another highlight of the exhibition would be the famous Fabergé pink gabardine and silk ornate jumpsuit and tailcoat, replete with satin appliqués, pastel seed, bugle beads, crystals and pearls.
 
Also, the display will feature the opulent rococo-inspired ensemble. The mid-eighteenth century European style outfit features a swallow-tailed cutaway coat detailed with crystals and gold beads, encrusted in leaf-like motifs, similar to the regal attires of King Louis XV of France.
 
Curated by the assistant professor of history and associate director of the public history program at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, Deirdre Clemente, the event will also showcase the artist’s rhinestone studded piano, opulent European candelabras and video clips of his performances.
