What's new for 2019?

So delighted to share a few of the many wonderful opportunities coming up for 2019! I look forward to working with new and familiar artists, makers and storytellers. Here are a few things coming up for 2019.

  • January 2019: Costume Designs for Giulio Cesare by Handel with Conductor: Gary Thor Wedow, Director: Robin Guarino, Set designer: Allen Moyer.

  • April 2019: Costume Designs for Bernstein’s Mass with Conductor: Constantine Kitsopoulos, Director: Candace Evans, Set Designer: Mark F. Smith

  • PRAGUE!!!! If you are attending the Prague Quadrennial, I’m delighted to say that my costume designs for Florencia en el Amazonas were jury winners and will be featured in the exhibition. (IUJSOM & San Diego Opera under the exquisite direction of Candace Evans) I wish I could attend but will be opening Candide with my good friends Michael Shell & Steven C. Kemp at Des Moines Metro Opera.

  • June 2019: Costume Designs for Candide by Bernstein with Conductor: David Neely, Director Michael Shell & Scenic Designer Steven C. Kemp at Des Moines Metro Opera.

  • October 2019: Costume Designs for Parsifal by Wagner…More on this exciting endeavor coming soon! I’m very excited for this unique opportunity.

  • Another couple of projects pending for late 2019 and spring 2020 and I’ll share those when I can. In the meantime I’m happily immersed in design research, teaching and in my exciting new role serving a four-year term as Chair of the Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance with a stellar group of faculty, staff and students. If you’d like to read more about my work with the department, here is a nice, somewhat personal interview on the 7th and Jordan Blog. Enjoy!
