Take a look at the world premiere of Moses

The world premiere of Henry Mollicone and Shishir Kurup’s Moses, presented through LA Opera and the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, was a massive success when it premiered last month (in our humble opinion). Conducted by our very own James Conlon, Moses featured a cast and chorus of nearly 500 from Los Angeles-area community groups performing alongside LA Opera singers and orchestra members.

Every spring since 2007, LA Opera has opened its stage doors to all aspiring performers in the Los Angeles community—including singers, dancers and musicians—to perform along with opera professionals. The Cathedral at Our Lady of the Angels has generously donated their facility for the program’s use since its inception.

Take a look at some photos from the performance below!

Of course, we couldn’t have done it without all the participating organizations that made Moses possible, including: Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, East LA Performing Arts Magnet, Hamilton High School, Holy Family Catholic Church, Performing Arts For All, Pueri Cantores San Gabriel Valley, The Sacred Heart School Choir, The Colburn Community School of Performing Arts String Orchestra, The Master’s Ringers Lake Ave. Church, Urban Voices Project, and Zarzuela Project of LA Opera.

LA Opera is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the greater good.
