She does indeed, maybe the production company were using costumes in more than one opera. Does she look like a Juliet.

Doesn't Juliet kill herself using Romeo's dagger?
Carol

Juliet does look a good bet, as she appears to be pointing the dagger towards herself.

Just before she commits suicide she takes Romeo's dagger and says:

 "O happy dagger! This is thy sheath. There rust, and let me die."


(Can't remember what she said in West Side Story )

The names--we'll some of them--in the newspaper cutting are from Carmen. Escamillo ,Don Juan, Carmen.
She looks absolutely, terribly harmless  ;D
Is she a relative of yours,.If Carmen she would be a soprano but sometimes a mezzo soprano sings the role.
It is funny how each fashion imposes its style on theatrical costumes.
