Shylock (Al Pacino) costume
An original costume used in the production of The Merchant of Venice, the 2004 adaptation William Shakespeare's play of the same name starring Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons under the direction of Michael Radford.
This costume was bespoke made by leading theatrical tailors Angels the Costumiers for Al Pacino as Shylock and can be seen worn in various sequences of the movie. The costume consists of a deep red tunic with decorative upturned sleeves, braiding and buttons and a floor length cloak of lightweight black material featuring a decorative woven lapel. Both costume pieces feature Angels the Costumiers labels to the interior linings which are hand inscribed 'AL PACINO' in pen.
The costume remains in excellent production used condition throughout with only minor wear.
A fine example of principal character costume from this well received adaptation.
