Retna Art Directs SF Opera's "Aida"

Nov 05, 2016 - Dec 06, 2016San Francisco Opera, San Francisco

When Retna set designed music videos like Red Blooded Woman, little did he know he’d be art directing another red-blooded icon in the future. The Ethiopian princess Aida spans centuries, and Retna has created a set big and bold enough for the land of the Pyramids. Take the step up from video screen and check out a bigger stage when the San Francisco Opera premieres its new production of Aida on Saturday, November 5, 2016. It’s loud, luscious and live. Check out the January issue of Juxtapoz for details on how Retna moved from Street to Stage.
