While Degas suppressed descriptive detail elsewhere in the painting, emphatic dark lines shape the heads and arms, underlining the artist’s formal concerns. Theatrical lighting over the off-stage performers recolors the figures and creates a simple color scheme of complementary red-orange and green hues.
