Le Coq d'Or

               by Rimsky-Korsakov

This classic opera by Rimsky-Korsakov tells of a boastful king who receives a gift of a golden cockerel from a mysterious wizard.  The golden cockerel ultimately proves his downfall in a tale of mystery and magic.  A comedic opera, the set design and costumes provided a fun palate to play upon with lighting.
