Bringing the Wild, Decadent World of ‘The Great’ to Life

Share

An unassuming building in the heart of East London is transformed into an imaginative interpretation of 18th century Russia for this wildly satirical, history-bending new series. From the lavish ballrooms to the gold-leaf candelabras, creator and writer Tony McNamara and production designer Francesca Di Mottola describe the intricacies of creating the “unpolished, realistic, decadent” kingdom of Emperor Peter (Nicholas Hoult) that a young Catherine the Great (Elle Fanning) walks into as she is married off to the tempestuous ruler. Costume designer Emma Fryer discusses charting Catherine’s arc through her clothing, and bringing a contemporary aesthetic to period costumery with modern fabrics. Explore the details that bring the colorful, seductive and dangerous world of Peter and Catherine’s story to life.
