If cultural status is measured by rock operas, Northeast Florida’s cred just went way up. “La Caroline,” a rock opera set in Northeast Florida, is the story of French Huguenot and Spanish Catholic explorers, artists, adventurers and the Timucua people as the 16th-century founding of Fort Caroline unfolds. A fundraiser hosted by playwright Jennifer Chase and musician John E. Citrone (who performs from the original score) to benefit 2014 local and international shows will be performed. The evening includes a custom menu by Elaine Wheeler and French wines served by l’Ordre des Chevaliers Bretvins. 7-10 p.m. June 29, home of Wayne Wood, $52.16, bit.ly/LaCarolineJax.
