The A.J. Fletcher Opera Institute and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts presents, "Rodelinda: The Queen of Lombardy" (2019) directed by Steven LaCosse. The design for this opera is set during the 1820s in Milan, Italy in which the political powers of the Lombard Kingdom are in an upheaval. Through the deep jewel toned color palette, attention to details, and trimmings, the serious mood of this opera is elevated.
