Raymond Boyce design for Rigoletto, 1964

This coloured drawing was made by set designer Raymond Boyce while working on the set of the New Zealand Opera Company's 1964 production of Verdi's Rigoletto. The production was toured nationally, so sets and costumes had to be both robust and highly portable.
