OPERA ORLANDO (2017)
MUSIC DIRECTOR: Andrés Cladera | STAGE DIRECTOR: Robert Neu | COSTUMES: Kim Welborn | LIGHTING: Jon Whiteley | HAIR & MAKEUP: Erma Sandora
"Although Opera Orlando gives us a more fully realized emotional experience of life, the staging shies from gritty realism to create a more theatrical experience. Scenic designer Grant Preisser’s set is framed like a giant window, curtains draped at the side, as if to remind us we are peeking in on someone else’s story."
