“Dulce Rosa” is an original opera performed at the Santa Monica, CA Broad Stage in June 2013. The opera’s set design concept relied on continuous projections to create a transformation between locations -- a fluidity that set and light changes alone do not give. The mood and environment of each scene were carefully stylized to fit the music and story. Additionally, by giving form and color to the heroes’ minds another dimension was achieved.
The design served two purposes: a theatrical set serving the story and staging, as well as a blank canvas for the seamless flow of projected imagery. The result was a rich live experience blending theatre, music, film and art.
