From: Chicago, Illinois. LA Opera: Omar (2022, debut).

Trained as a modern dancer and choreographer, Micheline Russell-Brown’s real love has always been as a costume and design professional. Micheline began her wardrobe career at the Roundabout Theater and then the Metropolitan Opera after a recommendation from her mentor at Bard College. From the Met, she moved on to Broadway, working backstage for several years at Rent.

After making a career in theater, Micheline shifted to film and television and has worked on productions including The Sopranos, Flight of the Conchords, Damages, The Good Wife and The Good Fight.  Always missing the pulse of live theater, Micheline is thrilled to be returning to the wings of the stage. She lives in Brooklyn with her wife and two children, forever dreaming up ways to better dress her family.
