Costume design for male dancer, made up of an orange shirt with golden buttons and garlands of flowers and scrolling leaves, and white collar and cuffs, dark red tight-fitting breeches, and orange boots with golden borders and rosette buttons. A dark red jacket with golden fastenings and black and gold cuffs hangs over the shoulders of the dancer, held with a golden rope that is tied around the front of the chest. A black and red hat, with a round, golden brooch on the front, flanked above by a white feather, adorns the head. The hands are covered with short, white gloves.
