Though there’s nothing on our main stage, the summer months provide our team the crucial time for planning and prep that the season simply doesn’t always allow. Over the last few weeks, we’ve shared about each department’s summer prep activities in anticipation of our season opening with Verdi’s Don Carlo on Sept. 22. We’ve already gone to almost every department at LA Opera asking what each team does while the stage is dark during the summer. In this final installment of our series, learn about what our Costume and Development departments worked on over the summer!
A few weeks ago, we talked about what our staff is up to during the breezy summer months at LA Opera. With the stage dark until September, the team is hard at work getting things in order for the 2018/19 season.
Summer is a peaceful time on the LA Opera stage — but though the stage is quiet, the offices remain abuzz! With the house empty for the next two and a half months, we use this time wisely to prepare for next season’s productions.
LA Opera’s Simulcast is one of our newest and most expansive programs, sharing the first opera of the season with thousands of Angelenos — in three diverse geographic locations and all at the same time.
Through the generous commitment of Los Angeles County and the Board of Supervisors, LA Opera will continue its simulcasts on Sept. 22, 2018 with Verdi’s Don Carlo, live at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, and live broadcasts at El Cariso Community Regional Park in Sylmar and at the Santa Monica Pier.
Ever wonder where your favorite LA Opera artists go when the season is over? Well, they travel the world! From Santa Fe to Salzburg, these singers have a busy summer ahead performing on stages around the globe. Read below to see where some of them are traveling before returning to Los Angeles!
Plácido Domingo, LA Opera’s Eli and Edythe Broad General Director, announced today that he has chosen the performers who will join LA Opera’s Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artist Program in the 2018/19 season. The artists were chosen from 650 applicants, 200 live auditions and, ultimately, 28 final candidates.
Vengeance. Betrayal. Love. And mercy. These are all ingredients that make for a tantalizing storyline.
Opera is known to possess all of these qualities, not to mention impeccable music that matches the fervor of the drama. Mozart’s The Clemency of Titus is no exception — since it’s 1791 premiere in Prague, the opera has since been staged all over the world at nearly all of the top opera houses. It’s not hard to see why — this exciting production deals with how far one person is willing to go for power. And that’s what attracted Arya Roshanian, Press & Content Specialist at LA Opera, to it in the first place.
