The colorful designs of international fashion designer Zandra Rhodes are well known to opera audiences. With Mozart’s "The Magic Flute" and Bizet’s "The Pearl Fishers," Ms. Rhodes’ work graced the San Diego Opera stage with a look that brought new life to these standard repertory items.
"Aida" is also a very ‘traditional’ opera, perhaps not a work that easily gives itself over to a new approach. But once more this designer has brought her unique palette to the sets and costumes of a familiar work in a brilliant burst of inspiration. In conversation with Dr. Nicolas Reveles, Zandra Rhodes will preview her designs for "Aida" and reveal the process which she used in creating them.
