Have you ever listened to an opera recording and longed to perform it? Have you ever watched a production at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and longed to act? LA Opera wants to make those dreams come true. We are working with the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels to produce a community opera production of The Festival Play of Daniel, conducted by James Conlon, LA Opera’s Richard Seaver Music Director. The Festival Play of Daniel is an inspiring medieval musical drama, a retelling of the beloved Old Testament story of Daniel in the lion’s den.
The production will feature a cast and chorus of nearly 400 from Los Angeles area and that could be you – performing alongside LA Opera singers and orchestra members. This unique program has a playful yet intense focus that culminates in community performances at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles on March 4 and 5.
Interested? Participation in the Community Ensemble does not require a formal audition, but interested performers must attend an orientation workshop at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on either:
- Tuesday, December 1, 6:00-8:00pm
- Sunday, December 6, 1:00-3:00pm
