Ever wondered how children get the “opera bug”? For 10 year-old Jesse McBride, it all started with a visit to his school by LA Opera. In 2017, LA Opera brought their Elementary In-School Opera program to Rockdale Elementary, where Jesse attended 4th grade. For 5 weeks, he and his classmates worked to learn their roles as the chorus in The Legend of Cannery Row, culminating in a performance for their fellow students and families.
Timed to coincide with LA Opera’s production of Verdi’s classic Rigoletto, this concert program focuses on the emergence of Verdi, Italy’s quintessential composer, out of the bel canto greats that preceded him. This concert features LA Opera’s Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artists, with music and program arranged by LA Opera Artist-In-Residence Matthew Aucoin.
John Neumeier’s haunting new production of Gluck’s Orpheus and Eurydice has been been called “exquisite” (LA Times) and “an achingly beautiful dream of a show” (Chicago Tribune). But what does the public think? Check out what audiences are saying about LA Opera’s Orpheus and Eurydice!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sing Carmen? LA Opera is presenting a free concert called Great Opera Choruses on Saturday, April 28th, where you can do just that!
Stephen Fry — English actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, poet, comedian, television presenter, and film director — will join Maestro James Conlon for a conversation about the Orpheus & Eurydice myth throughout literature and music.
The conversation is free to anyone who attends the matinee performance on Sunday, March 25 and will take place directly after the performance.
