April 10 - May 15, 2010 in San Diego County: Verdi's Aida Through the Eyes of Zandra Rhodes in the Main and Rotunda Galleries of the La Jolla Athenaeum Music and Arts Library. Opening Reception Friday, April 9, 6:30-8:30 PM.
Get a behind-the-scenes look at the sketchbooks, costume drawings and outfits that Zandra Rhodes created for the Verdi's opera Aida. The famed fashion designer was commissioned by Opera Pacific, in 2004, to design the sets and costumes for their production of Aida, directed by John Demaine Maine. Zandra's concept originated from a trip she made to Egypt in 1986. She became fascinated with Egypt's color palette of turquoise, gold, orange and ultramarine; the spectacular jewelry and the pleated figure hugging dresses of the pharaohs. Free Admission.
