PHOTOS: The Look of MN Opera’s Roméo et Juliette

Minnesota Opera’s Roméo et Juliette, now playing through October 2nd, features a set design by William Boles, costumes by Sarah Bahr, and lighting by Paul Whitaker. Here’s a look at the opera’s visual feel, which mixes contrasting color palettes for the rival houses with a dominant rose motif.
