Very few photographs exist of the first performance of this work. They are all poor quality black and white images from journals of the time. This new image superimposes elements of these at an enlarged scale in colours. Then by scratching at the surface a palimpsest of a virtual colour image appears.

The text is a description of the costumes that are shown in the original photographs.
