High Desert Opera begins its planning process about 6 months prior to the performance. Some of the first areas to be worked on are; music orchestrations are written to fit our smaller orchestra, graphic design concepts for all publicity pieces, set design and a costumer is chosen.
Meetings are scheduled to bring together each area to create a cohesive visual concept for set design and costume plot. These are the basics. There is so much more to do to bring the finished production to our audience.
