The fantastical set and projection design stole the show in the Northwestern University Opera Theater adaptation of Igor Stravinsky’s opera The Rake’s Progress. The work was inspired by a series of William Hogarth paintings and engravings that Stravinsky viewed at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1947. Directed by Joachim Schamberger, Northwestern’s director of opera, the show ran at Cahn Auditorium in the winter.
