Sergei Soudeikin was a noted set designer born in Russia who travelled the world completing beautiful and elaborate pictures for the opera. He was a popular costume designer who worked in Moscow, Paris, and then on to New York, where the New York Times heralded his arrival to work with the Metropolitan Opera with the "august ceremonies of a Russian reunion" (13 August 1922).
In his Carnival, Soudeikin uses the bright and vivid colors of his scenic repertoire palette to bring his characters to life. Admired both in Russia and his adopted home in America, he exhibited with the World of Art group of Russian artists and had an exhibition of more than 300 of his works in the United States.
